This letter dated February 13, 1886 is from the Barber County, Kansas Clerk, J. Walstead, regarding the office of coroner to Kansas Governor John Martin. Walstead wrote to announce and confirm a vacancy in the office of coroner due to the death of the former coroner, H. W. Meurcke. Barber County was organized on April 14, 1874. The county was named for Thomas Barber, a freestater from Ohio who was killed on the road between Bloomington and Lawrence during the Wakarusa War in 1855 by proslavery men.
