Samuel L. Adair to Zu Adams

Adair, Samuel Lyle, 1811-1898

Samuel Adair, Osawatomie, Kansas, described the two slaves that he had encountered. One was an eight to ten year old boy that had been hired by a merchant from Kansas City. The other slave of which he was aware was a woman owned by an Indian interpreter named Baptiste. This item is from information collected by Miss Zu Adams in 1895. She was researching the topic of slaves in Kansas and contacted a number of early Kansas settlers requesting information about slaves brought to Kansas Territory. While all of the information she collected was based on reminiscences, it still provides useful information that is difficult, if not impossible, to find elsewhere. Miss Adams and her father F. G. Adams were employees of the Kansas State Historical Society and the information received was donated to that institution.

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.
