Here is what I have on hand.
Plat Maps of Richland Township
1882 Sectiion 25 NW 1/4. A. Hanstine had the 160 farm which was located one mile
south and 1/4 mile East of the Whitewater Cemetery. The Gypsum Creek runs through it.
The Side near the north west road was low & flooded real badly so the house was located
up the hill. This farm house was torn down in the late 1950’s. The Beck
family had lived there many years after the Hanstines. Then it was purchased by the
Corfmans family. When Adam owned it, it joined my Grandfather Smith’s land.
Today the RR cuts through this 160 acres as well as the creek. It is still owned by Corfmans
I think. At least most of it. The tiny corner in the low land was sold and a new house built
there in the 1980.
The E. H. Hawks farm was in NW 1/4 of Section 9. This is West of Annelly.
The Next Plat map I have is 1902.
George B Hanstine now owns this 160 acres and the 142.50 acres next to iton the West. The NE 1/4 of Section 26.
Which once again joins my great grandpas land on the North and the south. And Fred Ulmer on the
West side. The RR cut a corner off this land and my grandparents owned this 12.50 acres. (We still own this tiny meadow)
George also owned 400 acres in Section 3 which is near the north end of the Township. Due north of Annelly. A L. D. Hanstine owned 159.73 acres along side it. And T Griffin owned the remaining acres in this section. Daniel & George’s children went to Annelly grade school.
The Next Plat Map I have is 1915 and by now the land in Section 26 and 25 is sold to Alfred Beck. The farm north of Annelly in Section 3 is now 160 acres in the name of E. L. Hanstine. And D.L still has his on the north. The west part has been sold but I cannot make out the name. Looks a bit like C. V. Chaney.
Maybe Clifford Chaney owned that land by then. Would have to see a better map.
1. Ernest L. Hanstine Born June 13 1885 Whitewater, Ks Died July 3 1960 Newton Ks.
Burial Whitewater Cemetery July 7 1960. Services from Draper Funeral Home Newton.
2. Mrs Ella A. Hanstine Birth May 14 1862 Acron IN. Died May 12 1957 Newton Ks
Draper Funeral Home Burial Nay 14 1957 Greenwood Cemetery Newton.
This is Daniels wife.
From this I am thinking you need to check Newton for Daniel and Adams burials. Lots of early
WW families did bury in Newton. If I was in Whitewater could do a quick lookup for you. The obits will be easy to locate in newspapers at the Whitewater Library as they now have all newspapers on microfilm.
Most of the pioneers were very nicely done.
Next I have some histories:
from "History of Butler county KS" by Volney Mooney for George B. Hanstine
from "Whitewater Ks History 1990 for Daniel L. Hanstine and The Hanstine Family.
Do you have these? If not will type them up and post. They were submitted by family.
