"Gnadenau" in Kansas

Date: 2000/02/08 23:14:24
From: John W. Wall <john(a)...

Thank you for all of the replies.

It's the colony in Kansas that I am interested in.  My g-grandparents
GIESWEIN and PINNECKER left Gnadenfeld and Moor, Russia in 1886 and settled
in Marion Co., KS.  That is the same county where Gnadenu is (or was?)

I hoping to find where I could check on any records with the Kansas colony.
