|I am researching the Bohannon family of Cherryvale,Kansas. Charles P Bohannon is currently the oldest member of the family that I have sources on. He was born on May 15 1861 in Arkansas and was married on August 27,1882 in Benton Co. Arkansas to Alice Adaline Williams. Information on the back of the family photographs indicated that four of the 10 children were born in Carroll Co., Arkansas and one born in Madison Co., Arkansas. This information is being investigated now and sources will be attached as they are verified. Charles first appears in the 1900 census in Barry Co. MO. with wife Alis and five children: Mattie, James Henry, William Robert, Ida Leola, Walter G., but I don't know where he was before that. Death certificate shows unknown parents making birth record hard to come by but I am searching 3 counties he lived in and around in Arkansas. Sometime around 1906 Charles moved his family to Cherryvale, Kansas, but his oldest daughter Mattie, did not follow as she was 17 in 1900 and probably got married during this time period, but I am looking for leads on her. Because the spelling of "Bohannon" is spelled 5 or 6 different ways their recordings and sources have been found spelled different from 1882 to 1930.|
In addition, I'm currently researching Alice Adaline Williams (the wife of Charles) and Alice Pearl Graham (wife of James Henry). As information is received and as time permits all decendants and spouses will be added.
Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
