Hello! My name is Keely Denning. I am a volunteer researcher for the Saline County Kansas Sheriff's Department.
I research families of our former Sheriff's in hopes of obtaining photographs of the former Sheriff's, and happy to provide free of charge any information I have on our former Sheriffs.
One of our former Sheriff's was E.M. Anderson... He served as Sheriff from 1891 to 1895. All the court records of which I can locate on E.M. does not give his name, but in land records and in census records I have found his name in several ways... Ebort, Ebben, Ebi and Eber.
He was born August of 1850 in Illinois. He was married to Louisa M. (unknown maiden name) she was born Nov. 1853 in Illinois.
Their children were:
Bertie, daughter born abt. 1873 in Illinois Aurora, daughter born abt 1875 in Illinois Willis, son born March 1878 Illinois Lillian, daughter born Jan. 1884 in Kansas Sherman, son born Set. 1886 Kansas Florence, daughter born Jan. 1880 in Kansas Frank, son born April 1892 in Kansas Morrill, son born Nov. 1894 in Kansas
Louise died in Saline County Kansas abt 1898 and is burried at Lindsborg, Kansas.
one son Lloyd twin to Lillian died in 1990. Daughter Aurora married Axel C. Carlson of Harbor, Washington in 1886/87 I can obtain copy of original marriage certificate.
Son Morrill died Dec. 1967 in Mount Vernon, Skagit County, Washinton
son Sherman died May 1967 in Mount Vernon, Skagit County, Washington
E.M. Is listed in a directory of Skagit County after he left Kansas...
Any help with locating descendants of this family, or obituary information would be greatly appricated!!
