Query Surnames: Wyrick

Date: 4 Feb 1999

Query: I am doing Wyrick family history, and found a Leo Wyrick in your Miami County cemetery index. There was a Wyrick who moved to that area but everyone in the family has lost contact with him and his descendants. The number beside his name was 495-V3. I wondered if you could tell me anything about this person, his birth or death dates, if they are available in the index? Thank you

St. Mary's Cemetery - located in Louisburg, KS - Row 3 of SW Section - DAGENETT, Noel, Nov. 19, 1827-Dec. 26, 1911

Vol. 3 - "Cemeteries of Miami County, Kansas" - Paola Cemetery - Oak Grove Addition, southern half - Section I - (According to City Hall Records - All Indian graves in Lot 397 were moved from the Old Cemetery in the North part of town in 1910 by David Lykins Peery who was adopted by the Confederated Peoria tribe in 1854 (his Indian name was Me Shin Go Me Shia), and was married to Elizabeth Peoria, daughter of Baptiste Peoria.) This move was approved by the City Council. - Row 3 - Lot 397 - BAPTISTE, Samuel F. (Kil Son Sah) son of Baptiste Peoria - Died Dec. 11, 1861, age 21 yr 9 mo - The grandfather of the deceased was a Piankishaw Chief & his grandmother a Miami woman. BAPTISTE, unknown, Died Oct. 17, 1861, aged 1 yr 1 mo 17 days, WADSWORTH, James, died March 6, 1866, aged 26 yrs, PASCAL, Amanda (Ke Ge Tah No Quah) wife of Luther Paschal, died May 23, 1859, aged 30 yrs (According to the history of Paola, Kansas, Amanda was the daughter of Baptiste Peoria), MELSEY, John, died March 23, 1867, aged 25 yrs 13 days, PEORIA, Nancy - Sacred - died Feb. 14, ___? (Top part of stone unreadable), ROGERS, Thomas (Che Swa Wa), died May 1, 1867, aged 48 yrs (Thomas Rogers was the chief of the Peoria Indians, in 1854), (BRIDGES) "FATHER" (Solomon), (BRIDGES) "MOTHER" (Catherine), (BRIDGES) Homer, (BRIDGES) Frank, BRIDGES, Christopher C., died Dec. 24, 1887, aged 33 yr 8 mo 6 days (verse unreadable)

There has been so much written about the Baptiste Peoria family. One thing that comes to mind is the fact that "Mother" BATISTE (note spelling) did not move to Indian Territory (OK) with her husband, Baptiste Peoria. She stayed in Miami County and is buried here. Like Eleanor Roosevelt, "Mother" BATISTE was a person in her own right. She had her own ideas and was valued for the person she was. Not for the person her husband was!

Query Surnames: Johnson

Date: 25 Jan 1999

Query: I'm looking for one Walter B. Johnson. Somewhere I've got page 200 of Miami Co. Genealogy Society 1988m Vol. II. I think he was killed in the Spanish-American War.

Rose RMcRR3@aol.com

Response: This information is from the book Cemeteries of Miami County, Kansas, Volume II, published by the Miami County Genealogy Society. Page 200, which is for the Lane Cemetery, in Franklin County lists the following: JOHNSON, Walter B. September 15, 1911 - December 5, 1924

Walter is listed among several other JOHNSONs, which I include here in case they are related. I cannot tell from the book if they are all contiguous graves. It appears to simply be a listing of all JOHNSONs in the cemetery (much like an index listing). Is says the information in parentheses is from death records and not from the headstone reading.
