Notes for John Haskins:
John's maternal grandfather was an immigrant from Sweden. His last name was Grunborg (with the two dots over the U - oomlot). When he came through Ellis Island the man couldn't understand his name and changed it to Greenberg - everyone thought he was Jewish after that.

John Haskins was a very wealthy banker in Randall, Kansas. The story from his grandson, Jack Haskins, (June 1996) goes like this. John, an upstanding individual, was unfortunate enough to be a very wealthy banker during the depression. Being the type of man he was, John sold all his personal possesions to cover his customers' bank losses. This included his mansion and his hundreds of acres of land. So John wouldn't lose everything, he deeded one square mile of land (640 acres) to his brother, Herbert "Pick" Haskins. The two brothers signed the papers officially giving the land to Pick, and had a gentleman's agreement, an understanding, that after the depression Pick would deed the land back to John. Unfortunately, Pick died before the depression had ended and didn't have the chance to deed the land back to John.

After the depression, John's kids went back to Aunt Mattie to get the land deeded back to their father. Well, she wouldn't see them. To her the land was hers and no amount of persuasion would make her give the land back to it's rightful, honorable, owner - although not legal owner. That square mile of land turned out to be a square mile of oil wells, and Mattie Haskins turned out to be a pillar of the community in Randall, Kansas (although she never let on how she got the land). Even today, (1996) Mattie Haskins is a well recognized name in Randall, a town which has the Mattie Haskins School and the Mattie Haskins Library.

We heard not the greetings of the angel band,
but we know you're waiting the hour when we
Shall meet you there and clasp your hand.

A precious one from us has passed,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
We'll often miss our sone and brother
When we are all alone,
For memory is the only thing
That grief can call its own.
Gos in his wisdom has recalled
The flower He hath given,
And tho' his body slumbers here,
His soul is safe in Heaven.


We wish to thank the friends and neighbors for their kind acts and expressions of sympathy at the time of the death of our dear son and brother and also for the beautiful floral offerings.

Death Takes Ed Young, Former County Commissioner

Edgar Young, a resident of Jewell county for some sixty years and a former county commissioner, died at his home in Randall Sunday evening. Mr. Young, who was 81 years old, has been a hospital patient on several occasions, and in recent months has been in very frail health. A heart attack, suffered after other members of his family had retired, caused his death. His death was not discovered until Monday morning. As his bed had not been disturbed, the time of his death was established as in the early evening.

Edgar Young, eldest child of Abraham and Susan Ellen Young, was born June 21, 1862, in Ohio. When a young boy he moved with his parents to Virginia, and then in his early twenties, he came to Kansas. He helped build the Rock Island railway line from Omaha, Nebr., to Phillipsburg, Kans. He taught several terms of school in the rural districts of Jewell county.

On Aug. 5, 1891, Miss Emma Haskins and Mr. Edgar Young were united in marriage. To this union a daughter and son were born, Susan Elizabeth of the home, and Claude Earl, who died Sept. 20, 1936.

Mr. Young was an industrious and capable farmer, a good business man, a trusted public official, a kind neighbor, and a man who made strong and lasting friendships among his associates. He possessed a keen mind, and was well versed in public affairs. Many people in Jewell county will miss the kindly smile and the cheerful greeting of their long-time best friend. Especially will he be missed in Randall and Jewell, in which towns he was a resident and it best known.

Besides his wife and daughter, Mr. Young is survived by two brothers, Charles and Frank Young of Emington, Illinois, and a sister, Mrs. Cora Chitterham, of Sterling, Ill., a sister-in-law, Mrs. Frances Young of Formoso; and several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist church in Randall on Wednesday afternoon. The Rev. James Gray was in charge of the services, which were largely attended by people of the home cummunity, and citizens who were associated with Mr. Young in public life. Interment was made in the Randall cemetery.

       Children of Emma Haskins and Edgar Young are:

Jewell County Republican, Thursday, September 24, 1936

Death of Claude Young

The death of Claude Young, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed young of Vicksburg Township, occurred Sunday, Sept. 20, and followed a gradual decline in health owing to a heart ailment and a period of intense suffering.

Claude graduated from the Jewell high school in 1920. The Young family lived here several years and the Jewell folks, especially the old neighbors, feel that they still belong to us. There have been many experessions of sympathy on the part of friends here for this great loss of an only son to Mr. and Mrs. Young.

The funeral service was held Tuesday in the Baptist church three miles east of Randall. The Rev. Glen Scoutne, a man who has been so useful for so many years in that wide community, conducted the service in the presence of a large audience. A number of Jewell friends attended the service. The casket was borne by young men of that community. Burial was in the Randall cemetery. The obituary notice is published elsewhere in this issue.

Claude Young was a quiet, reliable, dependable young man. That is the way we all think of him. Not a long life but a worthy life. The family now consists of Mr. and Mrs. Young and their only daughter, Miss Susan. It seems little anyone can do to help or comfort in such a time, but the family have hundreds of neighbors and friends about them who will do all they can and wish they knew how to do more.
