Have been helping my brother-in-law to work on his family tree.. Ancestor was Jair Wayne JOHNSON, b. ca 1846, PA, served in the Civil War out of Marshall Co, WVa, lived in Barry Co, MO and died in BAXTER SPRINGS, , Cherokee County, KS in 1900. He is buried there in the military part of the Melrose(?) cemetary. The list of children for Jair that we have is:

Newt and Maude's children were raised around Claremore, Spavinaw and Vinita and our branch settled in Vinita, Craig co, Ok. Have some info on descendants, but would like to contact anyone who could help us with more info. Will exchange info.
If you or others know of this family, I would appreciate hearing from you. We have descendants worked up some and would exchange. Thanks in advance.
