Did you find the pictures matched your family? I am descended from John Guy 1829 and Carrie Mathena who lived out their days in McPherson. We have never found John Guy 1829's parents. His father appeared in KY in 1819 and married Patsey Searcy in 1822. According to the 1830 census there was an older daughter that predates the marriage. I believe she was Sara who married Alvin Eaton in Missouri on September 14, 1845.
