It seems we have a match. I pulled the original Kansas census to make sure. *HENRY
ALFRED SHULL, born 6 June 1865, Ft. Scott, Bourbon Co., Kansas, died 12 October 1948. Spouse is listed as Josephine McDares with no other info on her, or on Henry. *HENRY ALFRED'S father, ALFRED SHULL m ELIZABETH FERGUSON (B 1829 in Ohio). She was tortured by Jayhawkers, burned on the soles of her feet and roughed up generally to tell where valuables were hidden. (ALFRED
was in service with the Union Army.) House and outbuildings were burned, stock run off, but she managed to get the children in a cellar, with an old milk cow that had returned, which kept them warm through the night until help arrived the next day. She died a few years later, 1871. Then ALFRED SHULL married a neighbor lady who recently lost her husband, NANCY REEVES McDONALD, on 4 Apr 1872. This marriage brought together 16 (this is being researched for verification at present) children. They had one more child, CHARLES SHULL, born 10 Oct 1875. In 1879 the whole family moved from Kansas to Missouri. *CHARLES followed and married childhood sweetheart MARGARET MINERVA HORTON, in Mohave, California. They had four children there then moved to Mohave County, AZ, where they had 10 more. *HENRY ALFRED'S brother, ALBERT "Pete" SHULL, retired to Mohave County (Kingman, AZ) where he has passed on recently. *So ELIZABETH FERGUSON is the Mother to HENRY ALFRED, and my grandfather Charles is a younger half-brother to HENRY ALFRED. I will see if my Mother and Aunt (only survivers of Charles' 14 children) can remember any more. They are 81 and 86 now. *ALFRED SHULL died 16 Dec 1895, buried in the Danforth Cemetery, Springfield, MO. I haven't been able to find death and burial data on Elizabeth in Kansas. *ALFRED SHULL'S father, JOHN SHULL, was born on or about 1804-1808. Grandfather said when he died he was 102 yrs. 6 mos. 18 days old. His wife (unk) was from Devonshire, England. *JOHN SHULL's father, ARCHIE SHULL, who was born in Switzerland on or near 1770 was also known to have lived 100 yrs. *Other siblings to HENRY ALFRED, MARGARET (b 1849, OH); JOHN (b 1850, OH m Martha, whose father was from Ireland); MARY (b 1870, Iowa); OLIVER (b May 1858, KS); JANE (b 1870, KS); ALBERT "Pete" (b 1868, KS m Mary Blevins); ANNIE S. (b 1870, KS); and Ellen Ruth we are still checking on. May have died young. e-mail me direct for hard copy of PAF file. Not ready to add to internet yet.
