Note: Online ancestry.com, 1885 Kansas State Census. Microfilm reels K-1 – K-146. Kansas State Historical Society.

The 1900 Census record for Wellington, Sumner County, Kansas shows that Daisy married Charles Macey Meyer. They had just married in 1900 and by 1905, Charles was married to Effie Smiley. Whether Daisy died shortly after she married Charles or whether Daisy and Charles divorced is not known.
Several genealogies say that Daisy married Ames Judd and died in New York. (One genealogy says she married Albert M. Judd. I believe that the Daisy that married Albert M. Judd was not our Daisy.) I can find no record of our Daisy after she was married to Charles Macey Meyer. Daisy is supposed to be buried in Osborne Township Cemetery, Mayfield, Kansas. If we could find her stone maybe we could answer this question.

Daisy Mae Munson married Charles Macey Meyer, son of Jacob Meyer and Henrietta Nacy, circa 1900. Daisy Mae Munson was buried possibly buried at Osborne Twp. Cemetery, Mayfield, Kansas.

Daniel P. Munson

M, b. circa 1843, d. 19 May 1905
     Note: Daniel came to Sumner County, Kansas from Rushville, Illinois in 1873. He worked on a farm south of Milan until 1899, then moved to Wellington to "engage in the flour and feed business." At his death his father and several brothers and sisters were still living in Illinois. He died of typhoid pneumonia. He was survived by his father E.P. Munson of Macomb, Illinois, then 88.

Apparently his move to Wellington was about the same time that he married his second wife, Lillian. That may explain why Mary Jane Vawter does not have a stone next to his in Prairie Lawn Cemetery.

Daniel P. Munson was born circa 1843 at Illinois. He was the son of Eliphalet Philbrook Munson and Catherine Sanders. Daniel P. Munson married Mary Jane Vawter, daughter of Beverly Sparks Vawter and Harriet Jane Lasley, on 16 November 1870 at McDonough Co., IL. Daniel P. Munson lived in 1885 at Palestine Twp., Sumner Co., KS.
