I am looking for the descendants of Melton and Etta
MARK. Melton MARK was b. Mar. 15 1887 and passed away Aug. 13 1958.
He is buried in the Stafford Cem. in Stafford, KS. They had two
children: Melton MARK Jr. and Marna Mae MARK, born 1926. I think
she married a farmer at Sylvia, KS... I have old photographs the family would
enjoy copies of and Marna's baby photo that is in mint condition.

My great-great grandmother was
Isabel SWIRES. She had several children, one of whom, Joseph S., moved
from Mineral County in WV to Sparta, MO and then to Stafford County. I have a
letter from him dated April 18th, 1882. He was married to Rebecca Clark in WV
and in Missouri and Kansas they had 4 children, Catherine, Robert, Joseph D. and
another girl child whose name I cannot find. The 1880 census shows Joseph,
Rebecca, Catherine, Joseph D., and Robert in York, Stafford, Kansas, as farmers.Can you provide me with any information on any
SWIRES families that lived in
this location, or perhaps even still live there? I have considerable information
on the SWIRES families in WV and would be delighted to share it if anyone there
would find it interesting of useful. Thanks in advance!

I am looking for information on a marriage between my gr
grandmother (Emma Mae BROWN) and gr grandfather (Charles Merton MILES) .
I have a date of 11 Nov 1903 but I do not know where they were married. I looked
in the Pratt county online marriage records and was not successful. So am
hopeful that they were married in Stafford county. Both died in Macksville
and I know for sure that Emma is buried in the Farmington Cemetery. I assume
Charles is too. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

My great-grandfather, August A.
KNECHT, was a
dairyman from Lech, Austria, that lived around Stafford, "in a sod
house". sometime after 1870 to 1880. He married "someone", who
died about 6 months later. (Date unknown) He relocated to what is now Kansas
City, Ks, and had a dairy south of 7th Kansas Ave. He remarried Gertrude
SCHWEERS in 1882, and raised 8 children. In 1894, they moved the dairy to
Louisburg, Ks, where he died in 1934. Curious to find the name of the
"someone" who was his first wife.

am looking for any information on Horace & Kate
who lived in
Stafford Co. during the 1900 Census. They have quite a history in Reno Co. 9
yrs. later but I'm interested in what happened in your county. They had 4
children during this time & would appreciate any info you could come up with
on these children. Also Horace had a brother John who lived in Hudson during
this time as well. I'd SO much appreciate anything you could give me on John. I
know it may not sound like a common name -- but it is. Both these brothers were
born in Indiana. Thanks in advance.

James Scheib August 26, 2003
I am trying to find out any information I
can on family from Stafford County. My great grandfather was on a farm outside of Hudson. If I am correct in
the name it was Michael Gottlieb SCHEIB. My grandfather grew up on the farm but
moved to Chicago. My great uncles Lou and Mike SCHEIB grew up on the farm
and I believe passed on in the late 1980's early 1990's. I know that Mike and
Lou are buried in a cemetery that is near the mill in Hudson. My family
visited the farm about a month ago, but currently no one is living on the farm
the family is spread out all over the country now. We were only at the farm
for a few hours and then visited the mill. We really were not there long enough
to ask about the family. I am hoping to start getting information on the
family and a list of people that I could speak with if I get a chance to visit
the Stafford area again. I have become very interested in finding out more
about the family. I appreciate any assistance and if I can be of any assistance
for anything, please let me know.
I don't know if this will help but going back I am the son of William SCHEIB
who is the son of Fred SCHEIB who was the son of Michael Gottlieb SCHEIB.
Mary Etta Daniels September 12,
I am trying to locate information about Lee Julian. His family lived in
Stafford county in the 1940's that I know, and perhaps longer. His father was
a mechanic; there were four boys and two girls in the family; and he was born
about 1930. He left high school and went into the service about 1948, and
married, probably in 1949. After his divorce, he left the area.
I believe that
his mother's name was Mae, but there are several Mae/May's and none of them
appear to be the right person. I also understand one of his sisters lives in
Wichita, but I don't know her name. I would like to know which Julian family
was his, and if, possible, where he is.
advance, for any help in this.
