I am looking for any information on Issac Stroud, in Mound Valley , Kansas Labette county. He is buried in Mound Valley Cemetery, born around 1864; Do not know when he died. He was my grandfather on my mothers side. Sandie Kinsey
I am interested in Labette
County because I believe it is where my great great grandparents were
married sometime between 1864-1866. Is there any record of Norris Harer
and Mary Jane Vann marrying in that county about that time. It would
probably have been in Oswego Township.
Any information on this would be much appreciated.
Looking for information about Enos Bartlett or his wife Mary Polly Bartlett and the Indian reservation (Cherokee) just over the line in Oklahoma. Enos lived and own a farm near Choetpa ,Kansas.
My name is Geraldine Taylor. My maiden name was Parsons. My grandfather was Floyd William Parsons, Jr., my great-grandfather Floyd William Parsons, Sr. I understand they were from Parsons, KS. I am nearly 62 years old and the only remaining member of my family. I know that they left Parsons and moved to California sometime before 1945 when I was born. They ended up in Orange, California where my grandfather was mayor of Orange for a number of years. I have very sketchy information on my grandfather but do remember something about a motorcycle shop that he or his father owned in Parsons.
I am trying to find out the date of death and cemetery burial place of my husband's realitives. They were a brother and sister who never married and they had a farm in North Township, Labette Co. His name was Robert Porter Pallett, altho he went by the name of Porter or R.P. Pallett. Her name was Florence Pallett. In the 1895 Census for that area, they are listed as being 48 Yrs. old (Florence) and 64 Yrs old (R.P.) I understand they lived there until they died. If someone could check the cemetery records for that area in the library for me, I would be very grateful.

LAKE, DUNGAN, SWANWICK
I am interested in knowing if there is any information about the burial site of James Lafayette Lake in or near Oswego, Labette County, Kansas. It is possible that his wife, Tamar, may be buried there also.
James Lafayette Lake and Tamar Elizabeth Dungan, my great grandparents, moved to Oswego shortly after their marriage in 1872. James reportedly died in Oswego on December 20, 1888 at the age of 48 and is probably buried there. Tamar eventually left Oswego in the early 1900ís, and eventually passed away in Garden Grove, California in 1929. Her burial place is unknown.
As all of Jamesí and Tamarís children were reportedly born in Oswego. Their names and birth dates are:
Harry Aubrey Lake, October 22, 1873
William Lafayette Lake, March 3, 1876
Lola Ava Lake, July 22, 1877
Floyd Lee Lake, May 5, 1881
Florence Edna Lake, October 22, 1886(?)
All eventually left Kansas.
I have an original grant Certificate No. 4881 issued by the U.S. Government, dated December 18, 1886 and signed by President Grover Cleveland, for sale to James Lafayette Lake of, ďThe lots numbered one and two of section nine, in township thirty-three south of range twenty-one east, of the Sixth Principal Meridian in Kansas containing eighty eight acres and eighty hundredths of an acre.Ē Review of USGS maps places this land just north of present day Oswego, bounded by Wallace Road, 14000 Road, the extension of 13000 Road, and the Neosho River. Recent aerial photos indicate that there may be a house on the property and that the Oswego Cemetery is immediately to the west. The property was eventually sold by my grandfather Harry Aubrey Lake after all his siblings had left Oswego.
James and Tamar's daughter Lola Ava Lake married Abraham Lincoln Swanwick in Oswego in 1897. They had a son Lincoln Swanwick born in 1902 possibly in or near Oswego. Abraham and Lola were divorced by 1920 and Lola later remarried after leaving Kansas and moving to California. Apparently, after living with his mother for a while as a child, Lincoln moved back to live with Abraham in or near Oswego by the time he was 18 in 1920. That is the last information in time I have about the Lake family in Oswego, Labette County.

In 1918 (James)(Thomas) William Reed KOGER list his address as R 6, Chetopa, Labette, KS on his draft registration card. I am not sure if this was in OK or KS at that point. His wife is Lottie M KOGER. A daughter was born to this couple in December/January 1919/1920 in what is now listed as Craig Co. KS. Her name is either Minnie Fern or just Fern KOGER. If this is within your "lookup area" I would appreciate your checking this out. If you can give any hints as to the location of this family in 1918 I would appreciate it, i.e., where was R. 6? At present they do not appear in any found 1920 census.

I am a genealogist for the CROOKS family who originated in Franklin Co., Pa. in 1738 (migrated from N. Ireland). I am specifically looking for a Kevin Crooks who lived in Parsons, Ks. however any other Crooks would be of interest as these would most probably be the kin of Rev.

I know he had a "tribe" and some left for Missouri, Florida and other points. I am the 8th generation in the direct line, we are Ulsterscots from Antrim, N. Ireland.
