Re: John M. McGUIRE (ca 1819 KY- ca 1895 KS)
Terry, I have a few Brown Co. Ks. resources. There is a John McGuire listed in History of Brown County Kansas compiled by Maj. E.N. Morrill 1876, giving a settlement date of 1856 for him.
Brown county cemeteries Vol 1. compiled by H.Lyle Hinz John M. and Catherine are buried in Hamlin Cemetery, Hamlin Township, John b. 5 Oct.1818 d. 26 Oct.1897 Catherine b.1 Jan. 1832 d. 1 July 1904Infant childrenchildren of C. and Estella- no dates
There also was a Hiram McGuire b. Ky in the 1860 census Could he be a brother of John M. ???I could look for an obit for John M. but it will be a while before I can get up there. I think that is the only record proving relation to John and Lucy, you will find for this time frame. Have you looked in Indiana for the will of John McGuire?
