Sunshine: Mrs Quince Daines of Council Grove, Kansas, 1923

[Postmarked] Chapman, Kans. May 7, 1923

[To]  Mrs. Quince Daines,
Council Grove, 

Dear Emma,
Hope you folk are all well-- I wish you folks could come up Sunday 13 & bring Stevenson along for we was going to come down.  George was going to get the corn in first he want to get cattle for the pasture when he come.  I just been thinking about you as much.  I don't feel very well this summer.  Will tell you all about it.  I hope you can come.  If it don't rain I will shut up them roosters [??].  With Love, M. H.


  1. Emma E. Dains nee Rhodes (1882 - 1977) (Find A Grave #39193938) is difficult to track in the census since the last name is spelled Dane, Daines, and Dains. In 1920, Emma's husband, Quincy Adams Dains is recorded as "Ouais Dane".

    At any rate, they appear to have been childless - so I don't know who Stevenson might have been.

  2. I searched for a George living in Chapman, Kansas, thinking his last name would begin with "H" and his wife's first name would begin with "M". The only couple I found were George C Harden and his wife Mary M Harden.

    Unfortunately, I've run out of time and was unable to determine how Mary and Emma knew each other.

  3. I stumbled across this while doing a search for my Dains relatives. Quince and Emma were my Great, Great, Great Aunt and Uncle. This is an amazing find, thanks for sharing!
