e-familytree.net is my personal genealogy hobby site. The data contained here has been gathered through 20 years of genealogy. It contains everyone I know who are connected to European Royalty or Nobility. Some small part of it is my original research, but most of it has been generously shared with me!

It is important to understand: This is SPECULATIVE DATA. Most of it is unverified. Use it for hints and pointers, but DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!!!

NOTES
1). 18401.ged Genealogy of the Palmer Trimble Families, page 939 Address Wichita, Kansas Note J.R.Downing signed the death certificate of Benjamin Henry Downing apparently he witnessed the certificate of his brother. He is also listed in Benjamin s obituary in The Wichita Daily Eagle, with the address of 1203 Waco Ave., Wichita. In the Last Will and Testament of his unmarried sister, Carrie Halstead Downing a bequeathment states To my beloved brother, Joseph R. Downing, the sum of $700. The will is dated May 9, 1930 thus it would appear Joseph R. Downing was alive at the time the will was prepared.

His death date was provided by Marilyn Grissom, grandaughter of Thomas Ellsworth Downing. Death certificate ordered 11 25 00. The family papers that Marilyn provided me with indicate that Joseph s first marriage to Emily Butler ended when Emily died in childbirth. The child also died. They are buried in the Maize Cemetery, Maize, Sedgwick county, Kansas. It also indicates that Joseph is buried in Maple Grove Cemetery, Wichita, but the records of Maple Grove do not support that statement.
