LARABEE posted by Mrs.. Nila Hudnall on Saturday, June 5, 1999

Hello, I was needing some information regarding The Parker Amusement CO. which may have been out of the Sabetha area in the years of 1905,1906, and later. I think my great-grandfather and his daughters may have performed in that company. The girls were trapeze artists. His name was Henry Larabee and there was an article in the Sabetha paper on his marriage January 18, 1900. He married a Mrs.Mary Fikau. Would appreciate any help or advice you might give me on this information.

MILLER, WORCESTER posted by Brenda Mayer on Saturday, June 5, 1999

I have been visiting the Nemaha County site looking for ancestors of my husband's. Rick is the son of Warren Mayer and Eva Worcester. Warren Mayer was the son of Charles Mayer and STella Hough. Stella was the daughter of V.O. Hough and Ella Lochnane (Locknane?). Eva Worcester was the daughter of James Worcester and Julia Miller. Julia Miller (1877-1952) was the daughter of John Miller and Lucinda (?). As far as I know, all were from the Wetmore/Goff area. Have you any information on these people? I wonder whether Ella could have been the daughter of David Lochnane, who owned the Granada Hotel. Rick has lost touch with his KS connections. Will welcome any information you have, or referral to others who may be familiar with these lines.

KUYKENDALL posted by Suzy Kuykendall Klinger on Saturday, June 5, 1999

I have been trying to find information on my great grandparents and their siblings from Seneca, KS. Several are buried in the Seneca City cemetery in Seneca, KS. My great grandfather, George Marion Kuykendall (1876-1957?) and his wife, Matilda Jane Carpenter Kuykendall (1879-1943) moved to the Seneca area in their early married life. Some of their children were born in Oklahoma. My great grandparents lived in close proximity at the time of their deaths, but had been divorced a few years before Matilda's death in 1943. Do you have any idea how I could possibly find a record of their divorce from Nehema County? My father's cousin Virginia Kuykendall (never married) still lives in the original family home in Seneca.
