researching: Myron Thomas and Esther MCKEEBY SULLIVAN, who came to Guthrie, Grant twp in 1880 with their children and sons of brother Henry SULLIVAN. Henry and his family also eventually moved to Adair.
i am searching for an obit for Myron and Esther and Henry. She died 11 May, 1899. Myron died 15 May, 1902. Henry died 4 July, 1899. Any ideas where i might find them?
The children of Myron were; Maria (NEWTON), Sarah (PRESBREY), William, Myron J (Sam), Frank, Jennie Elizabeth (BARR), Charlotte (RODGERS).
The children of Henry were; Alba W., Myron H., Sarah M, Mary E., Samuel K, Frank E. His wife was Lois MCKEEBY.
I would love to find some descendants/ cousins or other researchers.
Wall is not my family name, but my Reynolds/Bell/Sauvago families lived in
Guthrie and I remember my grandmother and aunts talking about Walls. I am
on my way back to Guthrie tomorrow to take my mother for her class reunion.
I plan on doing courthouse and cemetery research while I am there, so I will
ask about Walls. - Carolyn

I'm researching FLANDERS who moved to Guthrie Co. in the late 1800s.
James William FLANDERS, son of Azariah FlANDERS b 1813 and wife Matilda Jane
Strang, b 1822. Any information would be appreciated on ANY FLANDERS,
doesn't have to be James only.
Wishing you a successful research.

I would check into land records and see what they have to say about the
grantor and grantee.
I'd also check out all the WALL families too. Seems if someone in OUR
family knew how to spell their name the rest of the world didn't.
I'll look further in my records as time permits.

I'm going by a couple of things that indicate it was WALLS not WALL.
Henry's first wife (also named Sarah ___) is buried in the Washington
Township Cemetery in Marion County. The stone says Sarah WALLS wife of
Henry P. My grandmother was Edith Elizabeth WALLS who married Chris Hansen
in Guthrie County, Iowa.
So everything that I have indicates is was WALLS not Wall. That doesn't
mean the it didn't get changed to Wall by later generations.

Are you sure that there is an S on the name. I have a Guthrie Co. person
that m. a Raymond Wall. He did a tremendous amount of research and it is all
on the Family Search Site. Raymond d. years ago, but his widow is 90 years
old, remarried, and alive and well in Utah.

<< Who are you missing? >>
Actually you were so good that I have found everybody!!!!!
With the help of Guthrie Co. and Dade Co. Mo. I found my missing Jesse M
(Moore) Bishop. I have his will and probate and his parents in Effingham
Co., IL, and back to Ohio, VA, and MD in the 1700's. His sister, Margaret
Bishop, also was in Guthrie Co.
However, if you need a mystery to solve how about this. Jesse Bishop's will
was written in Guthrie Co. and he stated in the will that he was leaving as
"there has been a threat on my life". He moved to Dade Co. MO. He was in
Guthrie in 1860 and Dade in 1870 and died there in 1876 and have the cemetery
records. His wife, Sarah Ann (Johnson) Bishop is still a mystery. We know
she came from Ohio -- but a Johnson in Ohio is a big problem. One of Jesse's
sisters married a Cyrene Johnson so we are trying to work along that line to
see if there was a relationship there.
Was Guthrie the Wild West with gunfighters etc. in the 1860's. I still don't
know what Jesse did for a living so assume he was a farmer like most of them.
Or a gunfighter LOL.
I'd sure like to know the who, what, and why? <VBG>
Thanks so much for all the great help.
