I am searching for info on Philip Holmes of Illinois and wife Cynthia Owens
Holmes of Kentucky. They moved to Guthrie County, I believe the town of
Menlo, in the early 1880's . Daughter Clara married Leonard Cross, of
Stuart, in 1886. Other children of Philip and Cynthia were Ernie, Oscar, and
Howard, probably all born in Illinois. Are there any connections to anyone
I don't have yours but I do have a Ware Family in Guthrie County in the same
time frame. Guthrie was not too populated at the time and the Rock Island
Railroad was the main employer of the area. Mine lived in Stuart and a few
other towns in that area. I also had some Bishops that lived there until
1860. If you run across any of these names in your research please contact
