Kious Family Genealogy Forum
I am a descendent of Jacob D. Kious 1819-1870. Jacob D. Kious is the father or Harvey Pierce Kious, and Andrew Kious, my great-grandfather. Jacob D. Kious had 8 children, and he was from Galatia, Saline Co. Illinois.
My father, Paul R. Kious, resides in Jonesboro, Arkansas. I have heard him refer to his "Uncle Harvey". (He would be a great-uncle). My grandfather, Willie Kious, son of Andrew Kious, also had a brother who lived in Oklahoma. His name was Otis Kious and he died in December 1962. He was married to an Indian lady whose name was Margaret. We referred to her as "Aunt Mockie".
There is a Kious Cemetary in Galatia Illinois where many of this generation of Kious' are buried. My father has visited it several times. I would be happy to share any information we have regarding this line of Kious'.
