FIKE Kathy Edwards Sun Jan 19 22:26:51 1997
I am new at tracing the family & would love any information anyone has on Edgar L. FIKE, who farmed for many years around Grainfield, Gove County, Ks. Was born around 1872 & died May 20, 1956. He was my grandfather's cousin. Don't know where he came from or whether he was married. Who was his wife ? I believe his wife would probably have been a Scott if he was married. The only thing I know about Grainfield was that when my grandparents came to pick me up in Kansas City(1957)from a trip to Grainfield they had to throw away all white clothes they took because the tornado that came through had immeshed soil stains in them that couldn't be washed out. I always remember that when I watch the movie the Wizard of Oz.
