|We are researching several families at one time:|
The Brewster/Ellis family - James H Brewster married Anna S Mills in 1882.
They are both from Indiana, but settled in southeast KS.
Delos H Ellis married Minnie A Hamilton in 1896. Both were born in
KS and settled in southeast KS.
The Guest/Wright family - William A Guest married Hettie J Daugherty abt 1896.
Both are from Illinois and settled in Butler Co. Ks.
William O Wright married Anna F Keller in abt 1892. William was born in Weston, MO and
Anna was born in Grantville, KS. Both settled in Augusta, KS
The Sugden/Cates family - Charles Sugden was from Spencer, MA and he married Laura Kittredge
who we believe is from either Spencer or one of the surrounding communities. They had two children
Richard and Lelia. They were married about 1898 we think.
Spencer Cates and Phebe Cunningham were married in Jan 1843 and were from
Ky and IN respectively. We believe that we have linked this part of the
family to Jacob Rinker, who is the father of Henry Rinker. Henry Rinker
married Christina Waggoner in Sep 1783.
The Fields/McKay family - Thomas French Fields was married to Sarah Simmons somewhere between 1875 and 1800.
Both died between 1900 and 1904 and are buried in Warner, OK.
They listed their birthplace in the Indian Territory, Cherokee Nation.
We have found a possible link to Ludovic Grant from Scotland and Elizabeth Coody who
is probably a full blood Cherokee. Her name we believe was Eughiotte.
John Morris McKay was married to Sarah Ellen Sanders and then to Sarah Elizabeth Green Sandusky.
They lived around or in Purcell in OK.
