HISTORIES before 1923

"The history of the early settlement of Norton County, Kansas" by F.M. Lockard; pub. Norton Kan.: Norton Champion, 1894, 296 pgs. (LH9003, HeritageQuest images 5/2007; FHL book 978.1155 H2L and film 1,036,944 item 3)
      Pg.118: Robert Duncan Irwin was born in Greenfield, Ohio, March 21, 1851; moved with his parents to Fremont county, Iowa, in 1854. He received a common school education. He came to Norton county accompanied by his cousin, Oscar Duncan, in the spring of 1875. He took a homestead and timber claim three miles north-east of Almena where he remained until October 1885 when he moved to Almena and engaged in the hardware and implement business ... When Almena was incorporated as a city of the third class in 1893 he was chosen mayor. He is a son of a veteran, his father having served in the war. His mother came to Norton county in February 1893, and is keeping house for him; he never married. His cousin D.O. Duncan left here in the fall of 1875 intending to spend the winter in Missouri; but got homesick and drove all the way to his old home in Ohio before he stopped. He has since married and lives near his old home at Greenfield in that state. (MAD: Greenfield, Highland Co. OH)
