Cedar Bluffs  and Beaver Township

Cedar Bluffs Town Plat

Not many small towns or their residences have had a book written about them but Cedar Bluffs, Kansas can boost of not one but two.  Ralph Moody, author of Little Britches, spent over two years in the community between 1917-1920.  Later in 198? he wrote two books, The Dry Divide and Horse of a Different Color, about his years in Beaver Township.  These books are a "must" to read for those of you who are researching in this township and county.  Moody wrote these books for a story so they can not be called non-fiction but many of the names mentioned are actual, others have been changed to protect the innocent, and then there are others that are just there for the ride.  In the books that Kathy has,  her great grandmother and grandmother have made notes and comments about the people and events in the books.  She has transcribing these notes for me.  Most libraries have these two books or they can be interlibrary loaned.
