Albert Manhart cash-claimed a quarter in Section 18, 4N 46W in 1891\

Albert was delinquent on that quarter's taxes in 1904

Albert Manhart 29 married Edna Doyle, 28,  June 12, 1907 in Sedalia Colorado  The Albert Manhart in 1900 Sedalia was born in 1877, so he's probably too young to be the 1891 claimant


May 17, 1876 on the Kenilworth from  Antwerp were Mein..rad  23 and Martin 22 Meinhart, both Swiss laborers,  They said they were going to Philadelphia.

Maybe Meinrad Mainhardt in 1877 Milwaukee, a "local editor". of the Herold, is the same one. 

Meinrad Manhart cash-claimed a quarter in that section 13 in 1891. 

Meinrad Manhart was in the Denver 1892 directory as a foreman of the Greenwood Ranch, 1201 15th Street.  He was in the 1899 directory also, farmer, "n of Washington Heights."

Meinard Manhart married Eliza Whitlock March 29, 1894 in Denver, Colorado.

1910 census of Saint Clair County, Missouri has Mein *E Manhart, 56, Switzerland, farmer, married to Eliza, 45.  They have Hazel, 15,  and James Whitlock, 14, nephew.  In 1900 James F. Whitlock, 4, was living with stepmother Lillie Whitlock in Carbon County, Montana.

The 1915 census of Montgomery County, Kansas has M.F. Menhart,  62, with Hazel Menhart, 19, and James Witlock, 18.

In 1918 the Coffeyville, Kansas city directory Meinrad F. Manhart is a gardner, living at 204 N. Buckeye.  Hazel Manhart also at that address.

In 1920 Coffeyville  there's a Meinrad Manhart, 67 retired widower, who said he immigrated in '69, naturalized in '73

Also in 1920 Coffeyville, Hazel Manhart is a roomer with the Charles Rennet family.  They said she was 24, born in Kansas (but said her parents were born in the U.S., so the informant didn't know her well)


May 17, 1876 on the Kenilworth from  Antwerp were Mein..rad  23 and Martin 22 Meinhart, both Swiss laborers,  They said they were going to Philadelphia.

Martin Manhart cash-claimed a quarter in 23, 4N 47W (another mile southwest) in 1891

So he's probably not the Martin and Karolina Manhart, both Swiss, who arrived New York 1894.

He's probably the Martin Manhart, 23, in the 1880 Clinton, Iowa census.  Martin is with his brother Robert 32 and  wife Varina.  In 1895 Minden, Pottawattamie County, Iowa he's 38. 

In 1900 Robert June 1847 and Irina Jan 1852 were in Harrison County, still there in 1900 - with a son Louis born January 1897.
