The picture shows you a map of Republic County, Kansas. My only direct (g-grandparent, gg-grandparent, etc) ancestor to be born in Kansas was my g-grandfather Oren Ellis Meader. He was born in Richland township in Republic County in 1874. The family's post office was in Cuba which is just outside the boundary of Richland township. Their stay was short because of the locust plagues of 1875. They did go back years later and stayed for a considerable time. They were not my only ancestors in Kansas at that time. They migrated there with Oren's mother's uncle on her mother's side. His name was Evan Young. He and his family resided in Elk Creek township close to the boundary with Richland township.
