Nathaniel and Mary McMulin Wood are buried in the Milan Cemetery, Ryan Township, Sumner County, Kansas. This cemetery is located one mile west of Milan, Kansas (and about 15 miles west of Wellington) on Highway 160.
Nathaniel and his wife Mary were homesteaders in Sumner County, owning a quarter section of ground just about two miles west of Milan on what is now known to locals as “old 160 highway”. My apologies to anyone who is researching, I don’t know the new 9-1-1 name for this country road without driving out to look.
Nathaniel and Mary were my husband’s great grandparents on his father’s side, and though I do have a little more information on them, I don’t have much and I don’t have it with me right now.
My mother-in-law, C. Maxine Deffenbaugh Kline, always told me that Nathaniel’s nickname was “Than” and I thought that was interesting, as most would be nicknamed Nat or Nate.
Someday soon I need to do more research on that line!
P.S. If Nathaniel and Mary are in your family tree, please leave a note so we can ‘connect the dots.’ Thanks and ‘happy hunting!’
