This is from the Early Days in Kansas, Annals of Lyndon First Book Being Vol. 4 of Green's Historical Series, Published by C.R. Green, Olathe, KS, Dec. 1913. I included some of the Burkdolls listed.
"Will Holyoke now owns and lives on part of it, and Milo Sipes, who married Maggie Burkdoll, lives on the other 80 acres." - this is in reference to land previously owned by Sam Black who was the first white settler with family to settle on the Diminished Reserve in the neighborhood of Lyndon.
This is a list of names which has Andrew Sipes listed. The list was created in 1871 in Valley Brook Township to identify all persons liable to militia duty in the township that year.
