    3. I find so many names that are the same as my William Brant's family but you must know have everyone was named after everyone else. I've found that to be true in all the families I'm doing research on. I know Gertrude Hampton's family and the Brant family worked with the Brodbeck and Schraeder Carnival out of Kinsley, Ks for several years. I need to make a trip to the Carnival museum in Kinsley and see if they have any information. I know the rides were made by the company that Chance Manufacturing Co. took over for. I contacted them, Joyland in Wichita, Ks, where they worked the Midway for several seasons, and tried to contact the museum in Kinsley but could get no information. Anyone who knew them has died. I've been working on my family tree for decades but only started on the Brant family because nobody had any information I was hoping to find out more on the internet. daisy ----- Original Message ----- From: <[email protected]> To: <[email protected]> Sent: Monday, December 22, 2008 2:00 AM Subject: BRANT Digest, Vol 2, Issue 5 > > > Today's Topics: > > 1.
