George Stuart, 6 South 47 West

In 1910 Kit Carson County, George Stuart is single, 60 born in Ohio, farming.
He's next to John Ringer, 61, also single from Ohio. (John was a day laborer in Denver in 1900, born March 1849 in Ohio, married 25 years to Lavina August 1854 Ohio, with Lyeslie V. Oct 1881 Indiana and a married daughter Olive B. Spangler and her husband.
So the 1910 census might be erroneous for marital status...

AND there's a George Stuart in 1910 Lawrence, Kansas, 63, born in Ohio, a FARMER OF COLORAOD LAND. He's married 22 years to Frances E. 52, with Stella 28, Geraldine E. 20, both teachrs, and Walter 24 an electrical engineer. All five were born in Ohio.

George proved up two quarters in 3 and 4, 6 South, 47W in 1915.

In 1915 George is in the Lawrence census 67, with Frances 68, S.K. 32 and Geraldine 30.

July 11, 1916 -- from Marriage File @ Vicksburg Library -- NO CONNECTIONS to the following -- NO further information -- Posted FYI.
Announcements have been received here of the marriage on July 6th at Lawrence, Kansas, of Miss Elizabeth Geraldine Stuart to Mr. George C. Notley of Nogales (Ariz.) Mr. & Mrs. Notley will spend a few weeks with his parents, Mrs. & Mrs. W. F. Notley and family. They will reside at Nogales. " "
One descendant wrote "My grandmother Notley, born in 1882, had graduated from the University of Kansas, in Lawrence, in 1907, with a Bachelor’s degree in History and in 1912, with a Master’s in English.
She was a school principal in Meriden, Kansas for three years.
Then, with letters attesting to her character, succumbed to her electrician brother’s pleas to come join him in Valdez, Alaska, where he had secured a teaching position for her.
Family records suggest that during my grandmother Notley’s childhood, her father was gone as much as nine years.
The story that came down is that he was trying to be a successful businessman.
Perhaps there was some money in my great-grandmother Frances Stuart’s family, because, eventually, she gave her husband some money to invest.
He bought a hotel in Manhattan, Kansas and moved the family there from Ohio.
Once they got there, my great-grandmother rebelled.
'I am not raising my children to be servants in a hotel.'
She took the children to Lawrence, Kansas and no more was heard of her husband."

In 1920 Manhattan, Kansas, Franceis E. Stewart is widowed, 72, and Stella K. 36 is with her.

In 1930 Lawrence, Kansas, Frances E. Steawart 84 is widowed, living with daughter Stella H. BUmgardner 49 and her family.

If he's the one in 1850 and 1860 Iroquois County, Illinois, his brother is likely buried in Brown County, Kansas 1836-1909
