Query: I am searching for an Ora Haas and I'm quite sure that is her married name, sorry I don't have her husband's name. Her maiden name was probably Randolph and she would have migrated to the Olathe area circa 1918 from the Harrison Co. area of Ohio or the Blackford/Grant/Deleware Co. area of Indiana. She was a cousin to my Mother who met her only once in Van Buren Co., Iowa when the Haas stopped by on their way to Olathe, KS. I am hoping to link up with someone in Ora Haas family in hopes that they may have some information of Jacob Peter and Ann Atkinson Randolph my Great Grandparents. I have several names of Ann and Jacob's children, but don't know which one is a parent to Ora Haas. My Mother was named after Ora Haas and she is elderly now and is very interested in finding what became of her namesake. I hope this isn't too confusing. Would love to hear from anyone who knows about this Haas family. They may have been in the Hutchinson KS area also. Thanks so much.

Query: I'm looking for information on Ruth Grieve. She was a stepdaughter of Robert Lewis "Dr. Mac" McAllister and his second wife, Edith Folz Leveine. Ruth's biological father died when she was five. Her maiden name might have been Leveine.I believe she lives in Shawnee Mission or Leawood, KS.
Dr. Mac was first married to Katie (?) and they had one son, Lewis.I believe this to be in Marysville, KS. Lewis married Mildred and they had twins, Lewis and Lois. The twins and parents moved to Omaha, NE when they were in high school.

If you recognize any of the names please contact me. Thank you.

Query: Looking for siblings. This hospital was used by unwed mothers to place their children for adoption. The birth mother was born in 1920. William was the 3rd child born to this unwed mother. He has two siblings that have not been located. Birth mother was 5 ft. tall weighed abt. 120lb. with brown hair & eyes. She was of Irish extraction and Catholic faith. We believe that she lived in Oklahoma City at the time and went to Kansas for the births, and came back to her parents after the births. We believe that she she had a boy born 1938-1939 and another boy in 19449-1945 which she gave away through this hospital The mothers last name was Wren but each of the children had different fathers. We are trying to locate these two brothers Records are locked up by the courts even though all adults are deceased. Any help in locating Williams brothers would be appreciated. If you would born at Fairmount hospital during these years please contact us Three of the five children have been united and we would like to make this family complete. Please Help.
