Hi cuz'n Sandy! Sorry we didn't find more from the IOOF, but I'm just thankful for ANY supporting clues. I do have good news on the records from Lansing and I gleaned out some information that may help down the road. Jim was born in Texas on Nov. 23,1871....He was 23 when sentenced to 10 years at Lansing....He was received at the prison on 4 Jan 1895, and was #7238....Parents are listed as, Father/NO, Mother/YES, but Father had been born in KY....His Mother was not married, residing in Canadian City Texas, and had been born in MO....He was 6'1/4" tall....He was sent to Lansing from Cleveland County, Oklahoma....He only had 2 years of school, but could both read and write. It does not say when he was released, just notes, $1.75 and OUT. I have copies of the records from Rusk, Texas and Lansing, Kansas for you if you would like them, send me an E-mail and I would be happy to send them to you. I know we're going to find Jim, it may just take us a little time! See Ya, Rod
