Topolobampo Bay Colony, Mexico

Charbo, Eileen

This folder contains two letters, typewritten notes, and a brochure. Eileen Charbo sent the first letter, written March 10, 1976 in Mexico City, to Joe Snell, former Secretary of the Kansas Historical Society. In it Charbo explains that she is enclosing another letter--written April 4, 1966 in Mankato, Kansas--from her uncle Clare Jones (her mother's older brother) and aunt Mabel Zoe (Brown) Jones. The Jones' letter discusses farm life and family members in the 1890s, including Henry Osborne Benedict, Charbo's great-grandfather, who was involved with the Kansas-Sinaloa Investment Company. This Kansas corporation, founded in 1889, tried to establish a socialist utopian community on Topolobampo Bay, Old Mexico. Benedict lived there for over two years, but returned "a broken man." The Kansas-Sinaloa Investment Company's charter, which lists the Kansans who were officers of the company, is linked below. An eight-page brochure titled, "Copper Canyon: Majestic Caverns of the Tarahumara," and two pages about "Points of Interest" in Chihuahua city are also displayed here.

Rules for Congregational church funds disbursement

Congregational Church Building Committee

The rules identify the conditions under which Congregational churches or societies receive funds for building a Congregational church in a specific community. The money came from the "Fore Father's Day Fund" which was to be used to erect churches in the West. Samuel Adair was a member of the committee which met in Topeka, Kansas Territory.
