CRAIG, LEATHERS posted by Donna Craig Seidel on Thursday, February 7, 2002

I'm interested in CRAIG, LEATHERS or related families that lived in the Morrisonville area. My great-grandfather was James Edward CRAIG, born Feb. 22, about 1863/64. His twin sister was Jennie CRAIG who married Richard A. LEATHERS on Oct 25, 1885 in Christian Co. The twins also had a brother William CRAIG who lived in Morrisonville until he moved to either El Reno or Enid, OK, after about 1924. If this sounds familiar to anyone, please contact me. I'd like to learn out who their parents, or any other siblings, were so I can continue my search. I have information to share on the descendants of James Edward CRAIG.

BAFFORD, HATTON, HUNTER, KIMBRELL, MANES, SCHLEGEL, WRIGHT posted by Danalee Buhler on Thursday, March 7, 2002

I am searching for information about a HUNTER family who lived in Christian County in the late 1800's. My great-great-grandfather was Bert Homer HUNTER born in Pana, Christian Co. Il in 1878. From his obituary in 1933, I know that in 1933 he had the following surviving brothers: Charles, James, Edward, William, Glenn, Ray, John and sisters Mrs. Nina WRIGHT, Mrs. Claude KIMBRELL, Mrs. Alex SCHLEGEL and Mrs. Mattie HATTON. His mother's name in 1933 was Lucy (Elizabeth?) BAFFORD. I know that the youngest brother, John, has the last name of BAFFORD and was born about 1893, so I assume that Bert's father died and Lucy remarried. I don't know the name of Bert's father or where he was born. Bert was married to Cordelia MANES and lived in Stanley, KN from 1900-1911 where he had three sons with Cordelia, LeRoy, Lester Floyd and Bert Jr. and two children from a second marriage to Helene McClellan, Helene and Jamie. Any information about Bert and his parents or Cordelia MANES would be greatly appreciated.
