Need help in Burrton - Lost Rebecca!
Posted by: Deborah Landwehr (ID *****5683) Date: April 15, 2004 at 05:50:39

I have lost Rebecca W. (Morefield) Collins. I have her on the 1883 list of pensioners for Harvey Co., and the 1885 Harvey Co., Alta Township census but she isn't on the 1895 Harvey Co. census, in fact her brother-in-law (Albert G. Collins) is living on her home place in 1895. According to the pension records of her husband, Achilles, she was drawing an $8.00 per mo. pension while living in Burrton area. Most of her children moved on into Reno and Kingman counties but I can't find where she did. Albert G. eventually died there in Burrton and is buried there in the Burrton cemetery. I can't find a death/burial notice, or for that matter, a marriage notice where she might have remarried. Rebecca was born in 1824 in Virginia to Henry and Nancy (Powell) Morefield, married in 1837 in NC, widowed 11-3-1862, and moved to Harvey Co. in 1874 with several of her children and brothers-in-law. That's about it for my knowledge of Rebeccas' whereabouts. Any help would be appreciated.
