Do you know if John Wesley Linthicum had brothers and sisters? Or where he was born? I am trying to place Joseph A. Linthicum in Galena, KS between 1880 and 1890.
I am sorting out some old family letters written between 1882 and 1888 in Galena, Kansas.They were written by my grandmother's brothers who were Durees.Their mother was ELIZABETH LINTHICUM DUREE.There are several references in the letters to Uncle Joe and there is no Duree who fits this designation. Elizabeth Linthicum had a brother JOSEPH A. LINTHICUM, b.1838 in VA d. 1891. But I don't know if he ever lived in KS. There was also a brother JOHN L. LINTHICUM b.1845 in IN.Could I have the middle initial down wrong?Does this birth date or place fit your John Wesley?There were 12 children in this family and they migrated across the country from VA>IN>IL>IA>MO.Why not KS, too?
