Wellington W. Norman

Wellington Norman was my Great Great Grandfather. He was born March 7, 1857 and died December 26, 1935. He was my Grandmother Helen Norman Edwards Grandfather. He died at Noble Township, Dickinson County, Kansas and is buried at Good Hope Cemetery.

My mother has bedroom furniture that belonged to Wellington and his wife, Loretta.

Wellington Norman was one of the builders of the Wesley Community, which was located one mile east of the Chapman-Upland road on K-18. Here he established a store and post office, originally known as Good Hope, but later changed to Wesley.

Wellington came to Noble Township, Kansas with his parents, John Norman and Lucinda Deeds Norman, in 1872.

Wellington and his wife Loretta took up land in the W 1/2 of the NE 1/4 of Section 8 and the N 1/2 of the NW 1/4 of Section 9, Noble Township.

From Jim Norman:

Wellington moved from Ohio to Illinois in 1866.

Moved from Illinois to Kansas in 1872.

Moved to a location near Junction City, Geary Co., KS, on March 19, 1873.
