  • In search of the perfect Christmas treed

    In December of 1970 when our first child was a baby, my husband and I lived in a tiny house overlooking miles of prairie near Auburn, Kansas. Given my fascination with pioneers, I decided that, like Kansans of long ago, we should use a tumbleweed for a Christmas tree.

    Need information

    I am writing in hopes that someone in the county can help me locate some information.  I am looking for any information on a Charles Dorman Powell.

    He married an Ann Coghill of New Castle in the mid to late 1940s.  I know he had a sister by the name of Barbara and one, maybe two brothers.  I am also looking for any information on a William or Albert Rudd that lived/owned farms on Fallen Timber Road in the 50’s.
