I don't know if any of our family went to Kansas. I don't think they did. Seems like most of them stayed right in the North Carolina Part. I did, however, come across a reading that my mom had located about two brothers that headed out west at one point. Perhaps, I can find that again. I know this posting is a long time coming and perhaps you are already way along on your search, but when I find that about the brothers, I will post more.
