I have a suspicion that Rosa Oleta VANCUREN and George W. SPENCER were married in Ford County around 1898. Also, Albert M. SPENCER may have been in the county, but died in 1901. If this rings any bells, or if anyone can do a marriage lookup, please let me know.

VAN VOORHIS, Jennie Bell (Travis), 1873 - ? - I'm seeking information on Jennie. She moved to Bucklin, Kansas with her parents in about 1882, married Van VAN VOORHIS in about 1891 and raised a large family (8 or 9 children). She was shown in Bucklin on the 1930 U.S. Census. I would assume she passed away in Bucklin. I am seeking information about her passing and where she is buried. Also, would be interested in stories/pictures. I would be more than willing to trade research for same in the Spokane/Seattle/Portland area.
