Minor Burge Hupp
Date: 1869
A sepia colored photo of Minor Burge Hupp taken from the 1869 House of Representatives and Senate panel. Hupp born in Monroe County, Ohio January 22, 1836 was a private in Company A of the 9th Regiment of the Kansas Cavalry under Capt. George F. Early. After the war, he settled in the Kansas community of Ridgeway in Osage County and was elected to the Kansas House of Representatives. Later in his life, he moved to Iowa, Nebraska and Wichita, Kansas. The latter move was to be closer to his son's James Minor Hupp and John Minor Hupp who owned a grocery store on main street in Wichita. On April 27, 1892 at the age of fifty six, Minor Burge Hupp passed away and was buried in Maple Grove cementery in Wichita, Kansas.

O. H. Browne to J. A. Halderman

O. H. Browne to J. A. Halderman
Creator: Browne, O. H.
Date: February 25, 1859
This letter, written by O. H. Browne from Ridgeway, Shawnee County, Kansas Territory, is a call to action. Browne was convinced that he and Halderman and others were being "swindled" out of their shares in the Lecompton Town Company, and that "little Bob [Robert] Stevens, law partner of Gov. Shannon, is the mischief making monkey that has caused all this difficulty." Although Halderman is apparently inclined to let this matter go, Browne wants to file a law suit, and if that doesn't work he is "ready to join any company that may be organized and deal out justice to the Lecompton Town Company according to the rules of equity as recognized and administered by Judge Lynch."

W. F. M. Arny to Thaddeus Hyatt
Creator: Arny, W. F. M. (William Frederick Milton), 1813-1881
Date: October 15, 1860
W.F.M. Arny, agent of the National Kansas Committee, continues to send Thaddeus Hyatt, president of this committee, copies of letters he had received from Kansas settlers.

Fox of Ridgeway, Kansas Territory; the "Committee on the Little Osage" of Bourbon County, Kansas Territory; Dr. I. W. Robinson of Manhattan, Kansas Territory; and Joseph M. Todd and others of Greenwood Township in Greenwood County, Kansas Territory.
