Topic: Jacob B. Kellar
From: Vicky Linke
Date: Tuesday, November 13, 2001
In October of 1870 Jacob B. Kellar brought land in the South East quarter of Section number 30 in township number 34 south of
Range number 20 East containing 160 acres.
It was recorded at Humboldt. Can anyone tell me where this is and if Jacob B. Kellar shows on the 1870 census for Allen County. He was in Labette Co., Kansas before buying this property.

From: Dave Goldy
Date: Saturday, November 24, 2001
Section 30 of Township 34S, Range 20E is in Labette County,Kansas, not Allen County. You will find it about 3 miles west of Bartlett, KS on US 166, on the north side of the road. To the best of my knowledge, you can only record the purchase of land in the county where is land is located Thus, you could not record the purchase of Labette County land in Allen County.
You will find Section 30 of Township 24S, Range 20E in Allen County. It is about 2.5 miles east of La Harpe, KS on the north side of US 54. You might want to verify your sources as to which Township the land was located in, 24S or 34S.
If your library has a copy of "Township Atlas of the United States" by John L Androit, on page 212 is a map of Kansas showing the location of all the Township,Ranges, and counties. The map does not show the sections.
There is no listing for a Jacob B Kellar in the index for the 1870 Federal Census. The index contains the following:
Alna A Butler Co. 898 Walnut Twp
Charles Ellis Co. 028 Elsworth Twp
Reuben Franklin Co. 153 4 W. Ottowa
In the 1860 index for the Federal Census, I found:
George P Leavenworth Co. 133 Leavenworth
Julisu Leavenworth Co. 120 Leavenworth
These two are likely in the City of Leavenworth rather than a township.
You may also want to check the all person indexes to the 1865 and 1875 State of Kansas Censuses. The indexes will reference you to the actual census information. You can interlibrary loan the indexes from the Kansas State Historical Society. Take a look at the following link:
If you have any questions, let me know.

I only searched the cemeteries near Savonburg, as each cemetery in the book has its own index.
The Kansas State Historical Society has microfilms of the "Savonburg Record" available for ILL. The paper was published from Nov. 1891 to July 1922.
This link will take you to the newspaper search page at the KSHS web site. Leave the City box blank, select Allen County, put in the years of interest and put "Savonburg" in the Words in Title box. The results page will give you the microfilm reel numbers. Your librarian will need this and the newspaper title to order the films for you. You should also check out the link to "Interlibrary Loan Policies". You will find this link on the search page.
Hope this helps, and if you have any questions, let me know.

Geneva was a town that was about 4-5 miles north and then 4-5 miles west of Iola. Back 20+ years ago, when I was a little boy, my grandfather's farm was across the road from the cemetery. It was still being used for interments and in good shape at that time. My grandfather use to say that he was the gravedigger and maybe he was before his health failed (though I think now he was just pulling the leg of his grandson). I do remember decorations being put in a trash heap on his property following Memorial Day one year. I don't know if the cemetery is kept up anymore or not. I haven't been back that way in at least 6 years. I also don't know if there is a directory to it or not. Just wanted to give you a little further information on where it was located.

Topic: Secret and Benevolent Societies
From: David P. Graham
Date: Thursday, May 11, 2000
While recently in Iola doing research on my Wilkinson and Graham lines I had occasion to visit the Colony Cemetery to locate several Wilkinson grave sites. On several of them where separate engravings with the initials "AOUW" and "MWA".
While looking back in the early 1900 newspapers, I came across a listing of "Secret and Benevolent Societies" listing of meeting times and places.
I would like to know where I can get information as to what the initials stand for and what the organizations purposes were.
Can anyone point me to a reference or document where I can learn about these organizations??
Thanks in advance and have a great day!!!

Topic: HELMS - Allen County
From: Steve Burrows

Looking for information on 'Daniel HELMS', and his wife, Grace J. YEAGER.
Daniel HELMS was apparently born in Indiana around the year 1844. He came to Kansas sometime after the age of 14. He may have came with his brothers (Samuel & Isaac), where they joined 3 of their sisters (Nancy, Lucinda & Susan) and their husbands, who apparently had apparently previously moved to southeast Kansas. An older brother (Michael), and possibly younger brothers and sister, (John Henry, Martin D., and Catherine A.); [depending on when they came to Kansas, Martin and Catherine might not have been born yet.], apparently remained in Indiana. Daniel would have arrived in Kansas in 1873 or 1874. The 1850 and 1860 Indiana census shows Daniel, his father, and mother and what are assumed to be, all, his brothers and sisters at that time.
Daniel and his wife Grace, first lived in a simple one room house, located a mile south of the second house, that Daniel later built on the 80 acres (N. 1/2 of S. 1/4, of 16-25-21, in Marmaton Township, Allen County), 3 1/2 miles southwest of Bronson, Kansas. (It is now known as the Old George Broughton farm.)
Daniel and Grace are buried in the 'Old Elsmore Cemetery' in Allen Co, KS.

Topic: Olaf and Inga Nelson
Date: Wednesday, August 04, 1999
I am looking for information on:

Olaf Nelson
Born: May 24, 1823
Place of Birth: Holje, Parish of Jemshog, Province of Blekinge, Sweden
Died: August 9, 1907
Place of Death: Savonburg, Allen Co. Kansas
Wife's name: Inga
Immigrated from Sweden in November 1853. Settled in Knoxville, Knox Co. Illinois. Moved to Springfield, Sangamon Co. Illinois. Then to Savonburg, Allen Co. Kansas in February of 1870.
I believe he is buried next to his wife in the Wannersburg Cemetary in Savonburg.
We discovered a Newspaper article referring to Inga's death in a Savonburg Trio-news Article from March 19, 1897. It says Mrs. Olaf Nelson died in her home Tuesday. Which would be March 16th, 1897. We have her birthdate as March 7, 1827.
My paternal Grandmother- Mildred Frances (Kelly) Griffin b.6-9-1912 d. 3-24-1980
She was the Daughter of- Frances Edna Boman b. 6-2-1892 Savonburg, Ks
Who was the Daughter of- Samuel Robert Boman b. 4-10-1865 Springfield, IL and Sarah Nelson b. 3-12-1867 Springfield, IL
Sarah Nelson is the daughter of Olaf and Inga Nelson. So Olaf and Inga Nelson were my Paternal Grandmother's Great-Grandparents.
Family legend states that Olaf was nephew to a King Gustav of Sweden and was disowned for marrying beneath himself. Supposedly to a maid in the king's palace.
It is possible that he may have come to America as early as 1842. No one is sure.
I would like to find a birth record or marriage record for Olaf and or Inga but haven't had any luck as I am really new at this genealogy stuff.

Query: I am searching for information on the people listed below. Relatives in Sweden are attempting to find out if they have any living relatives in the USA that they can make contact with. Their ancestors emigrated to the USA, with a destination of Kansas. Whether they actually went to their original destination or if they stayed there after arrival is not known. Any help you can provide will be sincerely appreciated. These people were from the area of Dalarna, Sweden; the parish of Svardsjo (spelling??). You can e-mail me at (Patricia Adams). My US mail address is 828 N. 70 St., Kansas City, KS 66112. Home phone: (913) 299-0503.
