Looking to connect with others researching the McAhren family of Pratt Co., KS. James was born about 1860, probably in Illinois.He married Alice PIPER on Nov. 18, 1883 in DeWitt Co., IL.Shortly after the marriage they settled in Pratt Co., KS where their children were born:
Anna/Annie, b. July 1885 Shelba, (son), b. 1886, died young Wilby, b. Apr. 3, 1888 Edgar, b. Mar. 10, 1891 Lula, b. Jan. 1894 Gladys, b. Dec. 1898 Veta, b. abt. 1904
Alice PIPER-McAHREN, b. 1864, was the daughter of Dorothy NORTH and James PIPER, who were married July 6, 1862 in DeWitt Co., IL.James PIPER died sometime before 1879, and in that year Dorothy remarried to a Samuel McAHREN. I would like to learn if Samuel McAHREN was a relative of James.... perhaps his father?
Any help with these McAHREN's would be appreciated.
