Long time no see/speak! I am working on the family stuff too. I saw your response to Debi's message. . .she is the one in NE who sent us all the packet of info a few years back on Kush & Cedar.
I have found, through Ancestry.com, other branches of people working on Kush too. Jacob Ceder is a bit more difficult. I did find him in the 1920 census. If you have access, he is in 1920, NE, Nance Co, Newman, ED#170, p. 5 (online).
Let me know how you are.
