Pierce Sylvester MULLEN b. 4 May 1862, probably in Illinois, married Ladocia CHADD b. 9 February 1866 in Humeston, Iowa., parents of Don Loyd MULLEN b. 3 Sept 1887, Earl L. MULLEN b. December 1891 and Elsie Olive MULLEN b. 1898.  All children were born in Stafford County, Kansas.  This family lived near Seward.  I would like any information or suggestions to where I might find information.

NEW ADDITION: Fri., January 14, 2000

At one time they farmed 4 1/2 miles NW of Seward.  The birthplaces of their children are confusing, as my information states Stafford County, possibly at different time they resided in both counties, Stafford and Seward.  Searching MULLEN families in both areas.

Searching for any info on William E. and Nettie ROGERS HEWITT who were living in St. John, Stafford County in the 1880's.  They came to Kansas from Orleans County, New York.  William was a farmer in NYS, so I'm assuming he was in Kansas also. They were still living in St. John in 1887.



Bill Berry billberry2@juno.com Thurs., November 9, 2000
Searching for information about Mary Elizabeth BERRY, born about 1850.  Her husband was Martin L. BERRY and they were married in Indiana in 1872.
Their daughter was Hester Jane BERRY (known as Jenny).  When Martin died in 1880, Mary Elizabeth and Hester Jane (mother and daughter) moved to
Kansas.  Hester Jane was the second wife of George R. COOPER, and they lived in Macksville, Stafford County, Kansas.  George R. and Hester Jane
BERRY COOPER are buried in the cemetery at St. John in Stafford County, Kansas. 
I have information about Hester Jane, but not much about her mother, Mary Elizabeth BERRY.  I'm wondering if she remarried in Kansas, and if she
had other children.

I would like to put a query about Elizabeth Catherine HART.  According to her death certificate she was born 10 March 1849 in Newton County, Missouri and that her father was Jacob HART and he was born in Missouri.  Her mother was born in Missouri, name unknown.  The information was given by her son, George HUFFMAN.  Elizabeth died 17 May 1916 in Clear Creek township, Stafford County, Kansas.  She married Alonzo HUFFMAN on 17 Dec 1871 in Fayetteville, Washington County, Arkansas.  They homesteaded in Stafford County, Kansas.  They were the parents of 8 daughters and 1 son.  I have been unable to find her on the 1850, 1860, or 1870 census records.  I wonder if there might be an obituary in one of the newspapers in the Stafford or Pratt County area.  I would like to find her parents.  The family has said that she was an orphan and Indian.  Would like to prove this.
