Hello Cathy,

Are these the deaths dates of the 4 sons?

You may be able to get some additional information from

https://www.kshs.org/p/genealogy-vital- ... nsas/11313

Records Between 1885 and 1911
Between about 1885 and 1911 births, deaths and marriages may have been recorded at the county or city clerk's office in register volumes. Not all of these registers have survived. At the Kansas Historical Society we have copies of some county and city vital statistics registers on microfilm. Some of this microfilm is being digitized by the Family Search website. Additional information may be found in church records, newspapers, cemetery books and other materials in our collection.

We have the largest collection of Kansas newspapers on microfilm in the state. These can be searched for death, birth and marriage announcements. Search our Kansas newspapers database to see what papers are available on microfilm. These are available for interlibrary loan to other libraries.

Sometimes early vital statistics registers can still be found at the county or city offices that recorded the event, or at a local genealogical society or public library. Contact information for historical and genealogical societies, public libraries and other local places that might have preserved vital records are available on the Kansas GenWeb site. The information contained in these records varies from place to place.

See

It gives the cause of death as diphtheria.

Best wishes,
