I am looking for obituaries for family members that are buried at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, Altamont Kansas. I have a copy from the cemetery association which shows the lot and plot number. In all I have about 8 persons that I'm looking for. What would the cost be to do a project like this? I can furnish the names and dates (some are years only). The families are the Huston's and Vanslyke's. Thank you for the assistance.

My name is Andrew Held. I am looking for information on my mothers maternal family. Her grandmother was Celestine Farrell, of 1631 Chess Street, Parsons, KS. I know Celestine's husband was employed by the MK&T and I am wondering if there might be some personnel records I could examine. I have found the family in the US Census Bureau's on-line records. Any other recommendations you have would be gratefully accepted.
I am trying to find information on the Fizer family. This article mentions Labette Co, and the Hackberry Cemetery. Could you help me with any sites that might provide burial records or other helpful info? Thanks for your time.
My name is Barbara Dannels Jameson. My uncle is Floyd E. Hardesty. I know that he was in the U.S. Navy and was born around 1911. My mom, Ravedeenah Hardesty Dannels (Floyds sister) was born in Lakefield, MN and was in an orphanage. I found a 1925 U.S. Census that says a Floyd E. Hardesty at the age of 14 years old lived with G.M. and Irene Belle Davidson in Labette, Ks and listed Floyd as an orphan. I would like to know if you would be able to give me any information on G.M and Irene Belle Davidson. I am continuing my search for the Davidsons on Ancestry.com. Thank you very much for your time in this matter. Barbara Dannels Jameson 2114 Amhurst Duncan Ok 73533 580-467-4527
My name is Charleen Pickett
Schuster and I am trying to find out if my great
Grandmother died in Labette County, Kansas or any
other information about her after 1910.
The last information I have from the census shows that she was living there:
1910 Kansas, Labette County, 2 Ward Parsons Township, ED #147, Page 149 April 22, 1910
Blanche Pickett, 50 years old divorced, 6 children/5 living, MA MA Ma, Own income
My grandfather, Fred Arthur Pickett, son 19 years old MN, IA, MA Barber Shop
Bert Hiram Pickett son, 13 years old, MO IA MA
I know what happened to my Great Grandfather after they divorced and where he died in Napa County, California.
Do not know what year they got divorced and if they got divorced in Kansas or not. Just know that she is still there in 1910.
We think she may have died there sometime between 1910 and 1920 or maybe even later.
My Grandfather, Fred Arthur Pickett moved on to Colorado in 1920 and his brother was born in Utah on the way to Colorado.
I am in the process of joining the DAR and this is the only information I have not been able to find.
Please if thereís anyway you can help me find this information as to what happened to her after 1910 I would very much appreciate it.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

Peter Bowen came to Parsons in the early 1880's with his parents, Peter and Hannah Venters Bowen and brother Tolly and Samuel. His parents were ex-slaves who had traveled as enslaved servants from Georgia to Grimes County, Texas, where they lived until emancipation. After slavery ended, the Bowens, with several other families,(Bradleys, Tiggs, Browns, and others) moved on to Parsons in search of a better life in what they imagined to be a less racially charged environment. Life was not perfect for the early blacks of Labette County, but the family managed to expand and maintained an active life in the Parsons community. Peter H. Bowen, erroneously recorded ad Peter R. Bowen, was the only black to graduate from the City High School in 1899. Peter spent his latter years in Los Angeles where he died in 1945. Peter married Clara Fagan, and born to them was one daughter, Florine Bowen, who married Jim Whitmore. Florine and Jim had children Clarence and Willethel Whitmore. Florine Bowen, who's parents and grandparents migrated to Kansas from Texas during reconstruction, brought the family back to Texas in the late 1930's and settled in San Antonio, where she, her children and grandchildren were established for many years.

I am trying to find the death and place of burial of my father's sister, Beulah B. Knox, b. Nov. 25, 1905 in Canadian County, Oklahoma, married to Harold Smith. They had a farm in Oswego, Kansas in the 1940-1980's. They had three children, Maxine, Marilyn and Donald Smith. The last information I have on Beulah is that she attended her mother's funeral in 1978 in Oklahoma, coming from Oswego, Kansas. I cannot find Beulah B. or Harold Smith on Ancestry.com or www.findagrave.com. Can you find anything on Labette County/Kansas Records about them and their death and burial info? She is the only ancestor I need to complete on my Knox family genealogy.I will pay you for your search time.

Can someone help me locate the death date and burial information for Mary Sparks? She was married to Eli Sparks. They lived in Mound Valley Twp. I think they settled there in about 1866 and I think Mary must have died between 1870 and 1875 as her name appears in the 1870 census but not in the 1875 state census. I would be most appreciative for the assistance. Thank you very much.

Iím also looking for his son, James A. Cameron, who was last living in the Allen B. Hacker home in 1895. In 1905, there is a Daisy Cameron, born in 1901, listed as granddaughter, living with the Hackerís, but no sign of James A. Cameron. Daisy would have to be his daughter.
So the questions are, for the Parsons areaÖ.
1. Do you have any death/burial records for a James Newton Cameron, born 1850 in Illinois, died December 1875 in Parsons, Kansas?
2. Do you have any marriage Ė death Ė burial records for James A. Cameron, born 1872 in Missouri?
3. Do you have any birth records for Daisy Cameron, born 1901. There is a chance she was born out of wedlock, but we donít know.
Finally, our Fischer relatives believed they were heirs to a great fortune, as did hundreds of Fischers in the States, around the turn of the century. My great grandfather, Charles A. Fischer was a member of the Fischer Heirs Association, which met annually. I have his notes, and letters sent to him from around the country. I am currently writing a musical based on this story, and any information you could find on the Fischer Heirs Association, and Charles A. Fischer, or William E. Fischer, would be greatly appreciated. William was foreman of the Katy Foundry. Attached are their obitís, and some articles.
Thanks very much for anything you might do, and please let me know if there are any fees involved which I would gladly pay!

My great-grandfather William Ray Bailey
29 Apr 1883
in Chetopa, Labette County, Kansas.
I have a copy of a transcript of his original birth certificate which I can scan and submit, if that is welcome.
His father Joseph M Bailey was also born in Chetopa, Labette County on 25 Mar 1848. He and his family lived in Wichita for a time but then returned to Chetopa for a time before heading west. Family stories say he lied about his age and fought in the Civil War.
I do not have any official records documenting his birth, military service, or other vital stats. I would appreciate any info that could be sent to me.
Joseph's wife was Elisabeth Malvina McCulley who
would have lived in Labette for only a few years.
William Ray Bailey married Neva Gertrude Breese in Wichita, Kansas.
I would love to find any birth or school records for these ancestors.
