Sol Bowers, has a 2^ page Narrative in Vol 4 " Annals of Lyn-
don", pages 116 - 118, that covers nearly all his history up to about
1900. He came to the Sac & Fox Agency, by permission of Agent
Wiley the Spring of 1867, and started up a hotel. He waited until
the fall of '69 for the Sac & Pox lands to open and finally settled
on the Trust Lands, just beyond Olivet, buying out a Mr. Ham-
mond's rights. But not building and moving thereuntil the spring
of 1870. He lived there until 1885, serving 7 terms as Trustee and
two terms in the State Legislature, beside other offices, all before
his removal to Lyndon. While only 53 yrs. old, his physical infirm
ities rendered life on the farm unbearable. Buwer had a large cir-
cle of friends among the Olivet and Melvern Pioneers, Honest and
well educated he would have made a good Probate Judge in place
of Alec Blake, but he would not put himself forward.

See how he handles this N.S Brian matter that I wanted informa
tion about 1896. " Confidential; I have ever endeavored to put in
practice the fact that if I cannot say anything good of a person I
will with hold the bad. Now with reference to Mr. Brian; their
family and us visited together quite often. But it was only for the
respect we had for Mrs. B and children. While Mr. B was an ac-
comodating neighbor to me, and always friendly, for the irritable
treatment to his family, I could not have that respect for him
that I should like to hold towards my fellow man. He was a man of
average ability. Was elected Justice of the Peace in Arvonia Twp.
in 1871, was elected Trustee in Olivet twp. in 1874 or '75.

The poetry you refer to was published I think in the Lyndon
Signal, a paper of shorb life. The piece of poetry by Brian, was a
Burlesque on Osage City. As soon as the City was incorporated
they made the fight for tlie G-ounfcy seat, then at Burlingame, cla-
iming their oohre beds would be worth millions to the place. Mr.
Brian tried to show that the S. E- part of the county has had the
ochre color, (meaning the Indians,) for years with little benefit".
After Mr. Brian's death, Mrs. B moved to Wash. Ty. and md.
again- I do not know her address now. Solomon Bower.

Mrs. Bower died in Salt Lake City in 1897 and M. Bower down
in Texas about 1902. They lie beside each other in the Lyndon bu-
rial ground, while the mother and brother rest in Alpine Ceme'ry.


Charles Cochran's Narrative.

In full, 2i pages long, will be found on pages 9 to 12 Vol 4 An-
nals of Lyndon. Mr. C was born in 1833, and when he came on to
the Sac & Pox Reservation in 1860, was so much in advance of its
opening that he settled in Coffey Co, 2 miles south of where he
lives now. But 54 years in one neighborhood, ought to entitle him
to the title of an "Old Settler". In 1896 I found it expedient to
publish his history among the first. I do not wish to duplicate it
very much here, the Indian So co nut story, and list of Cochran's
Early Day neighbors only being given.

The Sac& Pox Indians, Soco nut's Band, dwelt in the days of
the 60's all along Prog and Long Creeks. They were honest and
would work some, hoeing, cutting up corn, etc. Every year when
they picked up to go on their annual hunts, they always wanted to
leave their trinkets, extra provisions and a lot of plunder in Char-
lie's care. He says; my house was small I could only accommodate
them sparingly. Old So co nut the chief, was rather behind one fall
in getting off, and came with some hampers made out of rawhide
filled with dried corn and beans, for their next season's consump-
tion. If I took aU this stuff it would almost turn me out of doors,
but here was where he wanted to leave it, and he was as firm in
his begging as I in refusing. Finally he says, "Nice house white
man got, you take 'em; me die: me never come back, maybe; you
keep 'em." This was a new argument to me, and I had to give in
and take his 3 boxes of dried corn and beans that were so delight-
ful for succotash.

One Sunday as Lem Warner and family were hurrying to get
off to Sunday school, an old Indian came up and begged for a chic-
ken and some potatoes for his sick squaw. After some pleading on
the one side and hesitation on the other, Lem concluded that the
easiest way out of it was to give him what he wanted. So he caug-
ht the chicken, wrung it's neck and gave it to him. What was
Lem's surprise to have the old Indian denounce him as a Sabbath
breaker in the following terms: "You whitey man kill chicken on
Sunday, you work Sunday, no good." We can imagine the indian
policy pursued there afterwards. Lem. P. Warner a brother in
law of Charlie Cochran's lived a half mile west then, but later be
came the well known Melvern merchant.


Mr. Cochran now in his eighties on his farm 4 miles south of Ol-
ivet, I guess has outlived nearly all his neighbors of the 60's who
were grown men then. Here is his list 18 yrs. ago; Jesse Schreck
and sons, John and Robert, Abram and Alec Wilson at Plymouth
each with a large family. Wm. Boland, The Billy Francis family.
Frank and Elmer Calkins, C. C. Scott, Fred Schroder, W. L. Nea-
lly, and some who are gone. It was all settled below Cochran in
1869, for his was the last farm on Frog creek adjoining the line of
the Diminished Reserve. His 5 children are given by name in the
narrative of 1896. Charles B. Cochran, his youngest son now 40
yrs. old, runs their large farm, and while death has visited Char-
lie's family, yet the old New Englander is there yet.

Lemuel F. ^Varner.


Ichabod Warner, the father of the above was born about 1804 at
Bolton Ct. md. 1829 to Lucy Foster born July 25 1804, probably in
Barkhamstead Ct. Lemuel F. born Sept. 1832 and Harriet E. were
fruits of this union. Mr Ichabod Warner died early in life. Mrs. L
Warner then md. Ebenezer Strong, of Hebron, Ct. about 1840.

The Warner family continued to live there until 1855, When they
removed to the neighborhood of Bloomington lU. Lem P. Warner,
was married there at Hebron, Ct. to Cedalia A. Bean from Maine.
Mr. Warner late in life use to talk with me much on antiquarian
subjects. He had a pair of gold sleeve buttons, quaint old Spanish
or French design, that had belonged to his Great grandfather of
Colonial Days 1740 or '50, who was of either Spanish descent or
had traveled in Spain before the Revolution.

Among Lem Warner's neighbors in 1856 in 111. was a young school
teacher from New Hampshire by the name of Charlie Cochran.
The next year Mr. C md, Harriet E. Warner, and the lives of these
two families run together. The mother, Mrs. Strong, lived with
one and the other of these children out here in Kansas, the rest
of her life, and it was a long one, for she was alive in 1899 at the
age of 95, living at Charlie Cochrans in Olivet twp.

In the early spring of 1860, a little colony was organized there in
111 for Kan, about 15 persons forming it. Warners, Cochrans, Ros-
merrys and others. The trip of 450 miles by land to Baldwin was


made in six weeks. Cochran in his narrative of this settlement in
Kan. has covered the life of the Warners in Olivet. Mr. Warner
being disabled from war service, staid and looked after the homes
while Cochran went to the War.

It might have been 1871, that the Warners removed to Melvern
and entered the mercantile business. I am not posted about this.
I use to trade with them some after 1880, and.I use to seethe old
Sac&Fox squaws of Mokohokp'sBand, ti^ading there a Jot, they
liked Warner and his wife. They always kept their word with him
The bucks worked out and allowed the squaws to buy living with
some of the earnings. Mr Warner was telling me once the idea the
Indians had of Uncle Sam's mail facilities. Two or three squaws
came to him one day with a letter, which they wanted to send in
haste to some one up at the Nemaha Agency in N. E. Kan. They
had the idea that if stamped at both ends the letter went double
quick. Warner was P. M. then as well as storekeeper at Melvern.

Mr. Warner served a short time in the Price Raid, of Oct. 1864 in
Co. A 16th Kan. S. M., and in late yrs. was made a G. A. R.

Their only child Chester M. Warner was born in 1858 before they
left in. And by 1896, the firm was L. P. Warner & Son. Mr. War-
ner was a pleasant man, easy to approach, with good judgement
in his business. Hence he was elected County Commissioner from
his District in 1901, serving one term.

Nov. 1902 Mrs. L. P. Warner died. This was a great blow to the
husband, She fiUed an important place tlaere in the Melvern soci-
ety, She was buried in the Melvern Cemetery. When over at Wav-
erly Reunion of Ohio folks along about tliis time, held out a mile
or two East of Waverly on the James claim, Mr. VV. told me that
his brother in law Mr. Bean had settled on the claim about 'GO and
that he, (Warner) had gone there in the early 60's and put uid hay
for Bean, boarding at the nearest settler's 4 miles away.

In 1904 Mr. Warner married Mrs- Sadie Booth — and took in tlie
Louisiana Purchase Exposition as a wedding trip. While she was
younger I expect than his son Chester, I never hear! but wiiat it
was an agreeable relation all round. , They had previously closed
out the mercantile business.

But Mr. Warner was not to enjoy his new relation long, After
some months illness he died April 8 1905. At this writing Chester
M. Warners home is Hidalgo, Hidalgo Co. Texas, (on Rio Grande)

Whose short sketches are found respectively on pages 91 and 102.

Olivet's First Settlers.

In 1879 a Historical map of Olivet Twp. gave names of every oc-
cupant, and owner, throughout the 66 sections composing the twp.
I believe Olivet has the same boundary line now, as then. But not
quite the area of vacant land. For in a hot summer day then, I left
O. S. Starr's afoot across the vacant Olivet prairie, a stretch of 5
miles the first tiling being encountered on the Osage City trail,
^ without house or drinking water. C. Clark being the first.

est, the boys up to 16 stark naked when in camp. Thev were a
part of Mokohoko's Band, which were all moved for good to
the Indian Ty. Novem- 1886. The early settlers of Olivet, knew

these 100 more or less Indians very well, and will testify to their

strict honesty and sobriety.

This brings us on to the Coffey Co, Line and END of Olivet Twp.
