One rumor was that he was killed by a claim jumper at Ft. Scott, Kan. An- other rumor was that he was robbed and killed by a family in southeast Kansas and his bones were found with several others in the hole under the family' s house. The mystery was never solved. Solomon's widow, Joanna Day Hudiburgh, and the younger children started west in 1865 with other rela- tives. After leaving St. Joseph, they were overtaken by a prairie fire, which is said to have swept from Kearney, Neb., to southeastern Kansas. The family became separated and she and her children stayed in Missouri. Joanna's second son, Thomas J., joined the Union Army in 1865 as a bugler in the Indiana Infantry Volun- teers. His regiment marched under Sherman on his march to the sea. After his honorable discharge, he went west, helping drive cattle from Texas. When he crossed through Jewell County he decided to homestead northwest of Burr Oak. Sarah arrives in Jewell County Sarah Hodgson, age 12, had moved with her family to Jewell County in 1870. In their covered wagons, they spent a winter at the mouth of Big Timber Creek where it joins the White Rock Creek They had been advised by the soldiers at the fort in Republic County, that it was not safe because of Indians in the area. At that time Jewell County had a population of 205, ac- cording to records. Indians, buffalo and wild turkeys roamed over the prai- ties. In the spring the Hodgson family moved on west and homesteaded north- west of Burr Oak.

William Day (Will), Ruth (Ruby), Ray, Indians visit Mary Jane (Mayme), Harold and Alice. One day as Thomas was turning sod, some distance away he saw Indian blankets moving near the dugout. He unhitched his team from the plow, hitched them to the wagon and ran them home, expecting to find his young wife's mangled body. He found her, excited but very much alive. The Indi- ans surprised her, but she showed no fear. The Indians only wanted food, so she fed them the bread she had just baked. The Indians saw Thomas' boots inside the dugout door and asked, "How muchT' Thomas bravely stated, "Ten dollars." They replied, "Too much." When the Indians left, they took with them acorn knife, the cow's lariat rope ship which resulted in theirmarriage in 1910. The young woman was Laura Maude Hutchison. Will and Laura Hudiburgh moved to a farm south of Highland cemetery, where six chil- dren were born, Glenn, Gall, Faythe, June, Tom and Mayele Beth. Thomas and Sarah take in. children When Maude died in 1922 Thomas and Sarah took Will and the children into their home. Later Aunt Vina Kivett took the four youngest to raise, and Glenn and Gall lived with their father, Will, in a one-room house on the quar- ter southwest of the Hudiburgh farm. Gall tells about a day when Will, Gall and Glenn had gun9 to Northbranch. When they got home, the hogs had pushed the door open, got into the house, upset the five gallon can of sour cream all over the floor. The hogs ate most of it and rooted around in the rest. He remembered that he, at the age of 12 or 13, had to clean up the mess while Glenn and their dad did the chores. Because .of Thomas' illness, the This is the home built in 1884 by Thomas Hudiburgh west of Northbranch. Sarah lived alone in the home after Thomas' death in 1932 until her health failed and she moved to be near two of her daughters in 1943. The home was occupied by members of the Hudiburgh family until 1963. Thomas builds new house tn 1884. Thomas built a beautiful two-story house from materials hauled by team and wagon from Hastings, Neb. He and Sarah lived in this house from 1885 until his death in 1932.

From Deanna's Desk " By Deanna Sweat, Extension Agent Fall doesn't have to end gardeners' enjoyment of some annual and peren- nial plants. Cuttings from outdoor plants can not only start houseplants for winter but also become a head start for next year's garden flowers. "Make sure the stems you choose are young enough and brittle enough to snap off. But cut them, instead, at a. slant, one-quarter inch below a node (eye)," advised Ward Upham, Master Gardener. program coordinator for Kansas State University Research and Extension. - / '. The cut stems should be two to five inches long and have several leaves. They also need three to five bare-stem nodes even if achieving th neans you must remove some foliage below the leaves you plan to keep. plants ~ill root m el- water or sterile rooting "soil" in- clude coleus, impatiens, wax begonia. English ivy and forget-me-not. Those that must have their nodes buried in sterile rooting medium include can- dytuft, cushion" mum. geranium, poin- settia, sedum and verbena. As the cuttings root, try to keep the covered nodes moist and the relative humidity around the leaves high. One easy way to do this is to place a plastic bag over the plants. Support the bag with stakes or wire hoops, so the plastic doesn't rest on the leaves. Uphg~also recommends planting rooting plants in bright, but indirect light.
