J. E. Searle

Winfield Courier, August 12, 1875.
Perhaps it is not so widely known as it ought to be, that Messrs. Moore & Searle are engaged in the manufacture of cheese, but such is the fact. Mr. Searle informs us that this county is superior for milk, butter, and cheese, to the far-famed dairy region of New York. Their cheese is a good article, and should be used entirely by our merchants and people.
Winfield Courier, September 2, 1875.
Strays. Two calves about six months old, one white one with red ears, and one red one with white spots. Can be found in Searle’s herd at the Tunnel Mills.
Winfield Courier, October 5, 1876.
Bill of J. E. Searle, $20, attention and care of same W. Hudson, a pauper, was read and on motion the council recommended the commissioners to pay the same.
Winfield Courier, July 19, 1877.
A. H. Green is sued for $5,000 damages for the false imprisonment of J. E. Searle, of this city. L. J. Webb, Attorney.
Winfield Courier, July 19, 1877.
Mr. Searle, of this place, was released from custody in Wichita last Friday by writ of Habeas Corpus. L. J. Webb, Attorney.
Winfield Courier, August 9, 1877.
The five thousand dollar damage suit instituted against A. H. Green by J. E. Searle has been withdrawn.
Winfield Courier, July 17, 1879.
Messrs. Hanchet and Searle brought us a piece of cheese of their own manufacture last Monday, which was as fine as any we have ever seen. It takes a “York State man” to make good cheese, anyway.
Winfield Courier, August 28, 1879.
Hanchet and Searle are out with a new milk wagon with an illuminated sign on each end. Milk is up.
Winfield Courier, April 28, 1881.
CIVIL DOCKET: James E. Searle vs. Overa Y. Searle.
Arkansas City Traveler, September 7, 1881.
The following named persons have been cured of the ailments mentioned:
J. E. Searle, Winfield, Ks., Scrofulous sores.

Since March, 1881, the bath house has been crowded, and there being but meager hotel accommodations, many who would have tried the waters could not be accommodated there. They have, however, gained an excellent reputation for curative properties. Several persons of our town have been benefitted by use of the waters, notably T. H. Stivers, L. B. Thomas, J. E. Searle, and Judge J. Wade McDonald, and we now understand Jacob Kearsh, who formerly was a baker for Mr. Dever here and whom everybody thought was going to die with dropsy, is improving very rapidly by use of the waters.
Winfield Courier, June 21, 1883.
J. E. Searle appears on our streets again with a milk wagon. He was the first, original, and only milkman in our city for years, and it seems much like old times to have him back again. He has set up a corral out on the prairies, bought a pump, and has opened out in full blast.
Winfield Courier, March 6, 1884.
DIED. Mr. A. B. Arment informs us of the death of Mrs. Sarah Cody, mother of Mrs. J. E. Searle, on Sunday morning last, aged eighty-four.
