I know I get sidetracked when I'm researching .Here is a story that is a little chilling but yet unusual.Here I go along reading about N.Z.What a gorgeous place .I came upon this story of an interesting gentleman.His name was William Tucker .William was a British convict who was always into mischief.William was born16May 1784-Died-December1817-William traveled a lot and could be found passage on a lot of ships.What is he most remembered for ?Starting a retail trade of human heads!At 2:30 in the morning that is I guess my Halloween Boo!
I have a picture on Facebook that I have been trying to identify.First off it looks like the 30s but maybe later.Asheville is written on it.Well I happen to look and the name Charkes is written on it.Could this be my great aunt once removed Nervie Burrell who married a Moss???Was her husband Charles if so she is the beautiful lady in the picture.To view look at my photos on my profile page.
Kansas in1854was a land of open prarie.Here they came from all over to take advantage of the settlements with opportunities!Free and cheap land provided by homestead act and the railroads attracted many.Agriculture remained the occupation,until1920.The homestead act was passed in 1862by Congress!Most people settled where people of same descent settled.Having a neighbor of same culture came in handy when you needed a helper or companionship.Blacks started a a new town called Nicodemus.After civil war andbefore1890population increase by greatest amount in history.Immigrants came from Europe.Some children were abandon or homelessThe children's Aid society of New York operated Orphan Trains!1854-1929-Of the 150,000 children that left New York nearly 5,000 of them were adopted by families on Kansas.By the end of1800German speaking people formed the largest immigrants in Kansas.Many others came from Volga River in Russia.They called themselves Volga'German or German Russia.Russian Swedish pioneers who moved to central Kansas in1800 Framtidslandet'(The Land of the Future!Many left Sweden when starvation threatened.Sweedish encouraged their family and friends to join them in Kansas!Mexicans came to Kansas to work on the railroad.They found work in the sugar beet production.Mexicans settled in Sw part of Kansas!The HMOnG originally lived in the mountains of southern ChinaThey were pushed into inhospitable lands,From growth of The Han Chinese civilization!This resulted in exodus of Hmong to nations of the south.The Hmong of Laos fled the country after Vietnam war.Some of them settled in southwest of Kansas in the1970s.America has always been a land of opportunity!Kansas with its diverse heritage is a great state of opportunity for pioneer life and even today ,Kansas is enriched by the diverse immigrants!Sources for this came from Kansas Historical Society!
Gold mining was popular then.Shakespeare family owned a gold company their.Panning for gold.In1858Installing lines for telegraph in Austrailia was a major accomplishment.Zin1872 Austrailia was linked to rest of world for the first time.Couldn't you imagine how excited they were.Doesn't that remind us of our computer era.
I have a feeling I'll find what I need at the library!
