Greers, Mills, & Co. Livestock in Kansas

I am looking for anyone who is related to the Greer family who owned the Livestock company in Emporia Kansas.

Family members include Norman Baker Greer and James G. Greer (1818-1899)

if you have any information about this family please let me know.
I am trying to figure out what happened to the two brothers of James -- Alex and John -- I have pictures of them both but can find no records of them...

I am descended from Alexander L. Greer, born 1807 in County Down, Northern Ireland and died 1884 in Covington KY. He immigrated around 1815 with his mother, brother Thomas, and four other (name unknown) siblings. My ALG had several children, including sons James and John born in the 1830s. Might my Alexander be the same as or somehow connected to yours? Do other parts of my ALG's story dovetail with your James Greer's story?

It could be -- but not sure --I know their parents came from Ireland, but I do not know the parent's names. Do you have any idea what Alexander did for a living? I know that Alex did not live in Kansas - Before the civil war - one of James' brothers was somehow involved with slaves.

My ALG was a very successful businessman in Covington Kentucky. He operated several businesses, participated in forming a railroad, and was a real estate investor. The 1850 census shows that he owned a slave, which I suppose was typical of that time and that place.
