I am looking for any information on James Cram and his wife, Louise Bailey who were born in Maine in the 1820's and later moved to Kansas. Any info will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I'm sorry, but I don't know the names of any of their children except for their daughter, Louise, who was my great-grandmother.

Do you know where in Kansas she was from? Jessie was from Bird City, Kansas, and she was born April 22, 1893.

Hi! I don't have anyone from Bird City, but Cram is such a unique name and since we have ancestors with the same name in Kansas around the same time, there still may be some sort of connection. Here is the information I do have, hopefully it will be some sort of help. I think I may have skipped a generation with some earlier information I gave you, so hopefully this will clear things up. James Cram was born abt. 1822 in Aroostook Maine and married Louise Bailey who was also born in Maine aound 1824. They must have moved their family to Nebraska from Maine, because James died in Fletcher, NE, and their daughter, Lucy Ann Cram-Playford (my great-great grandmother)married Steven Thomas Playford who also lived in NE. I wish I had the names of all their children. Lucy was born in Maine on Dec. 14, 1854. She is buried in Atwood, KS. They (Lucy and Steven and her mother Louise and possibly more children) must have then come to Kansas from NE. because all three are buried in Atwood, KS. Lucy Ann Cram-Playford and Steven Thomas Playford are the parents of Louise Playford-Dyer (kind of confusing since she was named after her grandmother). Louise Playford-Dyer was born on Feb 4. 1880, but I don't know where. She also died in Atwood. Is this all about as plain as mud?!?!?! Where is Bird City located in Kansas?? I hope this has helped more than confuse you. Let me know if there is a connection or if you have any questions. Lori

Ok, Bird City, is only 22 miles from Atwood, and we are only 21 miles from the Nebraska state line, so I am sure that we are some how connected. I will find my papers, and let you know more. You can email me direct at kburns@kans.com

Lucy Ann and Stephen Thomas Playford were my great grand parents. My grandfather, whom I never knew, James C. Playford married Bertha Ann Pate. My mom was Hattic C. Playford, and my dad a Lewis. I've been trying to find out where James C. is buried. I'd like to know about the rest, too.
Yes, I'd like to hear from you. Thanks. Jean
