Thanks. I wondered if Salinda might have gone to Fowler. I know that my great grandparents, George Thomas and Dorinda Ann (Boucher) Mayhew and her brother, John Boucher and family, homesteaded there. My grandmother, Cora Mayhew, said they traveled by covered wagon and lived in a sod house. Dorinda died in Meade Co. KS near Fowler, but her body was returned to Lawrence Co. MO, where she is buried in the Boucher Cemetery. George Mayhew brought his three older children back to MO, but left his six-month-old baby with John and Manie Boucher until he was weaned, at which time he was returned to his family in MO. Eventually, John Boucher and family also returned and lived in Jasper Co. MO.
