Sayers Family

                                                             Shep Sayers.
The Special census of February 10, 1870, lists Shep Sayers, Emma Sayers, and Levina Sayers.
The Cowley County Democrat of July 13, 1876, stated “Attracted by these reports a party of persons, consisting of James Renfro and sons, Judge T. B. Ross and sons, Shep Sayers, and Frank Hunt, crossing the sombre, stony hills of old Butler, followed down the Walnut river on the 1st day of January, 1869, and ‘took claims’ in the bottom just above the mouth of Timber Creek.”
Winfield Courier, Thursday, September 4, 1873.
The dwelling house of S. R. Sayers, three miles north of town, was last Saturday totally destroyed. A defective flue was the trouble.
No more entries for the Sayers family could be found. MAW
