Lincoln, Wellington.Exodusters was a name given to African Americans who migrated from states along the Mississippi River to Kansas in the late nineteenth century, as part of the Exoduster Movement or Exodus of 1879. It was the first general migration of blacks following the U.S. Civil War.The meal begins at 5:30 p.m. and the meeting at 6:30 p.m.. There is no charge for the program and everyone is welcome. For possible bad weather cancellation, contact Best of the Orient at 620-399-8575.When two of Neta Jane Doris’s former high school classmates and friends asked her to do their family history, Doris was only too happy to help them out.Doris had been involved in several family history projects, found ancestors and descendants for several, reconnected family members, begun family reunions, and published a family history on her mother’s side of the family.She was glad to help her friends out.“I’ve been researching for about 40 years,” Doris said, “I just love the research. Actually, when I’m researching, they almost feel like my family.”Doris, who did the bulk of this research prior to the age of computers, learned that her two friends were not only the descendants of “Exodusters”, or African-American slaves freed by emancipation, they were also related to each other.“The more I researched, the more interested I became,” Doris said, adding that it took several months to find much of the information and expand their family trees.“There were about three years when there was a mass exodus,” Doris said, adding that most Exodusters came to Kansas between 1879 and 1881 and many were from Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas where circulars were passed out by both black and white people to entice the new settlers to Kansas.Doris said that the mass exodus “happened so fast and so suddenly that it caused a Congressional investigation.”Doris’ has focused her research in Pawnee, Hodgeman, and Edwards counties in Kansas, where her friends’ families homesteaded, but the techniques she used can be used to further your research in other areas.“Over 40,000 poor black people emigrated during that time,” Doris said, “they were kind of led to believe that they would get money and land, and that didn’t happen.”Doris said that she will “speak about the general history of the Exodusters and talk a little” about the people who settled in Kansas: one family who was involved in the Underground Railroad, one family whose owner (and father) freed them and gave them money to move, and Lutie Lytle, who became the first woman black lawyer in Tennessee in 1897 and was the first black woman to be admitted to the Kansas bar.“Sometimes families were torn apart and you never get them back together again,” Doris said.For those genealogists and family historians searching for their own Exoduster history, Doris said that she will bring along a copy of the circular used to advertise settling in Kansas as well as books and articles, census and land records, and share information on some of the resources that she used, and also how and where she found the information.According to Doris, many of the citizens in Larned today are descended from the Exodusters.“They were some of the earliest settlers in that part of Kansas,” Doris said, “they showed a lot of strength and determination.”last_img read more

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Fifteen years ago, the conditions of two Wellington Victorian-type houses were similar – extremely poor.One house was located at 224 South F. The other was at 721 West Harvey. Both were dilapidated and decaying and both had captured the attention of the Wellington City Councils for possible condemnation.Karl with Jana BraddickToday, the house on F Street has seen its demise, flattened this week with an excavator.The other house at Harvey is one of beauty now on the National Register of Historic Places – thanks to the vision of one man: Karl Braddick.Braddick and his late wife Jana moved to Wellington in 2002. Jana, who grew up in Arkansas City, was gravely ill and wanted to spend her last days on this earth near her parents, who were living in South Haven. They both decided to move to Wellington.Karl likes to restore things – most certainly houses. And he saw two houses that could be restored.Both Wellington houses were described as “Queen Anne” Victorian style houses. Queen Anne style architecture was the rage in the late 19th and early 20th Century that were to reflect the style of buildings built during the Queen Anne era, who reigned over Great Britain from 1702 to 1714.House at 224 South F earlier last week.Braddick said he had approached Randall Jones, owner of the building on 224 South F, and asked about buying it. Jones refused to sell. Braddick looked elsewhere, and purchased the property at 721 West Harvey.“Quite honestly, the condition of both houses were terrible,” Braddick said. “That house I restored was as bad as the one on South F – no doubt about it.”He purchased the property in 2003. In the next 14 months, it became a time-consuming labor of love process. He brought up two of his construction workers from Dallas to help rebuild, and used local contractors with the electricity and plumbing.After he was finished, he had one of the premiere homes in Wellington.Today, the house is known as the Henry Freemont Smith House in history restoration circles. It was built approximately in 1886 as a one story home before H.F. Smith and his wife purchased it in 1887. The couple made it into a two-story home by 1896. Today the house is 3,800 square feet of beauty with its soft yellow painted exterior – trimmed in white and accented with black forest green and cedar fish scale shingles.See full history of house here: http://pdfhost.focus.nps.gov/docs/NRHP/Text/07000318.pdfRestored house at 721 West Harvey.Braddick said he purchased the house and property for $50,000 and then put in $250,000 in it with labor.“And I can’t seem to sell it,” Braddick said exasperatingly from his home in Dallas. “I just found someone to lease it, which I hope turns into a sale. But I would be really surprised if I get $250,000 for it. Getting $250,000 for something that cost me $300,000 isn’t a very good investment.”Braddick has also bought a house on North B and purchased and refurbished the Glasco building downtown. He’s hoping to get all three structures sold. He has moved back to his native area in Dallas and is restoring a house there. It has been five years since the death of his wife. Braddick is ready to move on.Perhaps, when hearing Braddick’s story and that of the city’s struggle with the property owner at 224 South F — see story here — it is understandable how difficult it would be for lightning to strike twice. It is probably not too far fetched to generalize that there are historical structures throughout the nation that are seeing its demise, because of various circumstances.Several people have contacted Sumner Newscow questioning why some material was not salvaged from the South F structure – such as the windows with small stain glass, or the unique trim, or possibly historically valued door knobs inside. Wellington City Economic Director Cody Sims said the city was not going to partially salvage anything from the house in an interview Wednesday. There was a liability with people getting on the property because the structure was so unsound.Wellington City Manager Gus Collins said in a memo to the city council more than a week ago said:“The city has never during my term as City Manager, salvaged any portion of a dwelling. I am not recommending that we enter into the auction/salvaging business; however, I have received many requests/inquiries from citizens to “salvage” this dwelling. Due to the history of this property, perhaps we should consider. It would be my recommendation that the Demolition Contractor coordinate with any interested citizens.”The item was discussed at a work session meeting on Monday, but no action by the council was taken. Sumner Newscow was unable to attend that meeting.The house at 224 South F was originally built in 1900 by J.E. Kramer, who was the President of Farmers State Bank in Wellington.Braddick, when hearing about it Saturday, expressed dismay.“Oh, my goodness, there is a lot of money being left on the table there,” Braddick said. “Those stain glass windows would have been worth quite a bit of money. Those huge columns should have been salvaged.”He said he had no idea the condition of the trim was, but he guessed it could have fetched for some significant bucks.But historical preservation is not an exact science, and sometimes it is about dumb luck.For there were two dilapidated century-old Queen Anne homes in the 1990s in Wellington – whose fortunes took dramatic turns. One was torn down this week. The other stands as a monument of one’s vision. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

Thank you for your input. +3 Vote up Vote down Former Wellingtonian · 341 weeks ago I fail to understand what kind of thought process took place to purchase the house on F knowing it needed restoring and then NOT do any restoration. What were the Jones’ plans? Perhaps an interview with the Jones’ could shed some light. If there were mitigating circumstances that prevented the restoration it might soothe a lot of grief and anger the public is feeling. Report Reply 1 reply · active 341 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down In the know · 341 weeks ago Watch videos of council meetings when Mr. Jones was there, and see how rude he was treated. Even after the roof was done, they still yelled at him for not doing anything. Report Reply +9 Vote up Vote down Historian · 341 weeks ago This is exactly why Wellington can not get anyone to donate or help with historic projects. Attitudes like Gus Collins is why Wellington is going down the tubes. There is no good reason why some of the historic architecture could have not been saved. It boils down to Mr. Collins was more interested in distruction and power than saving. Why not save some of the historic buildings instead of building cardboard section 8 housing complexes?

I only know because I would drive by periodically to admire it. It was a lead glass window that was just absolutely beautiful. It was on the south side of the home on a short wall that faced to the west. I wanted that window so badly to hang on my wall to have the history. How many eyes looked through that window through over 100 years? Someone has it now and I truly hope they appreciate the history they are looking through.

Many thing a coat of paint and shore up a couple steps. I have seen the same things with old cars. Most don’t realize the enormous amount of money it takes even if you can put in the 60-80 hrs a week of labor and have the skills and knowledge to get it done in a couple years . If it takes much more than that it seldom gets done.

This was at the end of the 1950’s. I remember her boyfriend being there during the visit and getting into an argument with him because I was annoyed about the way he was eating his peanuts he was snacking on. I was just a little boy at the time, and remember thinking the apartment was really big, and spending some time on the balcony. The visit was short, just about 20 minutes, but I never forgot how big the house was. I have always remembered the visit there with my aunt every time I drove by as an adult, so was very disappointed that the structure could not be saved. I would have liked to seen the project finished so I could have gone inside and seen it again. I remember the time spent there but little else about what the rest of the inside of the house was like.

We’re very much all about recycling here in Wellington….I don’t know WHY it cannot be done with old buildings that simply must be torn down. And tearing them down should always be a last resort which in this case, probably was. Report Reply 0 replies · active 341 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!

first_imgThe Texans notched a signature victory by knocking off the Patriots 28-22 on “Sunday Night Football.”Led by a strong defensive performance and stellar play from quarterback Deshaun Watson, the Texans finally ended their losing streak against the reigning Super Bowl champions. NFL PLAYOFF PICTURE: AFC, NFC standings for Week 13Houston had been unable to knock off the AFC powerhouse for the past decade; it last defeated Tom Brady and New England in Week 17 of the 2009 season. The Texans ended the eight-game drought (including the playoffs) in impressive fashion Sunday night, with four passing touchdowns (three by Watson, who caught the other from DeAndre Hopkins on a wild play) against a Patriots defense that had allowed four passing touchdowns all season.VIDEO: Patriots-Texans highlightsNew England opened the scoring with a Kai Forbath field goal on its opening drive, but Houston was quick to answer. Watson logged a pair of touchdown throws on consecutive drives while the Houston defense frustrated Brady into a flurry of incompletions and pressures. Brady finished the first half with 7-of-19 passing for 82 yards and an interception.MORE: Brady airs out receivers on sidelineBrady settled in as the game progressed and finally energized a Patriots team that didn’t look like the one-loss division leader that it was coming into the night. Still, New England (10-2) was unable to provide much drama until Julian Edelman caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from Brady with 55 seconds remaining to cut the Texans’ lead to six.

first_imgThe fourth set of rankings will air at 7 p.m. ET. The “College GameDay” crew of Rece Davis, Kirk Herbstreit, Jesse Palmer and Joey Galloway will reveal the committee’s weekly rankings of the season. CFP committee chairman Rob Mullens will then join the show to discuss the rankings.Week-by-week Playoff rankings:Week 10No. 1 Ohio StateNo. 2 LSUNo. 3 AlabamaNo. 4 Penn StateWeek 11No. 1 LSUNo. 2 Ohio StateNo. 3 ClemsonNo. 4 GeorgiaWeek 12No. 1 LSUNo. 2 Ohio StateNo. 3 ClemsonNo. 4 GeorgiaWeek 13No. 1 Ohio StateNo. 2 LSUNo. 3 ClemsonNo. 4 GeorgiaProjected CFP rankings: Who are the top four teams in college football?1. Ohio State (12-0)2. LSU (12-0)3. Clemson (12-0)4. Georgia (11-1)According to both SN’s Week 15 college football rankings and Playoff picture, the top four will be No. 1 Ohio State, No. 2 LSU, No. 3 Clemson and No. 4 Georgia, with No. 5 Utah and No. 6 Oklahoma as the first teams out. What will the penultimate College Football Playoff rankings look like this week?The top four should remain pat — or at least contain the same four teams — heading into conference championship weekend. That means Ohio State, LSU, Clemson and Georgia remain in control of their destinies, with Utah, Oklahoma and Baylor likely vying for the fourth and final spot in the Playoff. That scenario, of course, assumes the chalk holds this week. The Playoff-contending teams were whittled down again after Rivalry Week, with Alabama and Minnesota both eliminated completely from contention after losses to Auburn and Wisconsin, respectively. It makes for an easier job for the CFP selection committee, but that doesn’t mean they won’t have one or two big debates left to discuss.MORE: 6 scenarios for final CFP rankings, from chalk to chaosIn fact, the biggest question might not be what team takes the fourth spot, but which of LSU or Ohio State finishes with the top overall seed. LSU beat Texas A&M 50-7 on Saturday while the Buckeyes downed No. 10 Michigan 56-27. The Tigers play No. 4 Georgia in the SEC championship game while the Buckeyes play No. 10 Wisconsin in the Big Ten.With that, here’s everything you need to know to tune in to the fourth College Football Playoff rankings show:What time are the College Football Playoff rankings released?Date: Tuesday, Dec. 3Start time: 7 p.m. ETThe College Football Playoff will unveil its fourth set rankings at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Dec. 3.

Alistair Overeem dominated Jairzinho Rozenstruik through the first four rounds and the bulk of the fifth round Saturday in the main event of UFC D.C. There’s a reason why main events are 25 minutes long, however. Trailing on all three judges’ scorecards and with time ticking down, Rozenstruik threw a left uppercut followed by a scintillating overhand right hand that sent Overeem down and against the cage. Rozenstruik thought the fight was over, but referee Dan Miragliotta hadn’t signaled the end.  The tide began to turn in the fourth round. Rozenstruik started to get Overeem against the cage and connect with hard shots to the body. The punches took their toll on the former Strikeforce heavyweight champion as the bout wore on.Rozenstruik is undefeated in 10 fights after one of the most exciting knockouts of 2019, with nine of those victories coming via stoppage. It didn’t take long for him to call out the person he wants to fight first in 2020.”I want to be back March, April, and I really want to fight this big scary guy Francis Ngannou,” Rozenstruik said, referring to the former UFC heavyweight title challenger and a fellow knockout artist. “I hope you accept this fight. Let’s give these people a real show.”UFC D.C. undercard resultsMarina Rodriguez vs. Cynthia Calvillo declared a majority draw (29-28, 28-28, 28-28).Ben Rothwell def.
