Birth records don't begin in Jack County until 1903. The same year that death records are kept.

If he was not a soldier at the Fort, there would not be a record of his death in their post returns. I looked at their post returns for 1874 and confirmed that his name is not in their records for that year.

The Fort story was called the Commissary.

The newspapers in that time period was the Frontier Echo. I don't see a note about the birth of the children in the 1873 newspaper. Births were not typically recorded in the older newspapers.

It will take me some time to look through my 1874 newspapers for your other ancestor.
