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.
