Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
The bio. reads as follows:
"VERMILLION BYFIELD, farmer, P>O> Neosho Falls, was born in Indiana, in 1837, and at five years of age his parents moved to Illinois and lived there until 1865, and came to Kansas and located on a farm in Spring Creek Township, coffey County, and has been engaged in farming and stock growing. He was married in Illinois, in 1859, to Mary E. Emel, a native of Indiana. They have seven children--William A., Emma F., Olive M.,Charles A., Sarah Florence, Leonard L. and Thomas W." Hope this helps. The book is on line but my computer recently went ker-poop and when I got it back from the shop I had lost the bookmark (luckily I printed the Coffey County chapter) Perhaps one of the other readers has the URL, and will be kind enough to give it to us (please!)
