Edmund Rathbun, born Sept 28, 1800, at Delhi, Delaware County, New York, and moved with his parents to Belpre, Ohio. He married about 1832in Richland County, Ohio, Mary Dye, born January 31, 1813, daughter of Daniel and Jane (McIntyre) Dye. They moved in 1837 to Jay County, Indiana, where he purchased a 200-acre farm. After the Civil War, they moved to Missouri, first to Gentry County and then to Worth County,and in 1872 to Hendricks, Chautauqua County, Kansas. Edmund was described as a blacksmith in the 1880 census. He died at Hendricks on January 2, 1882, and Mary died there February 14, 1889.

History of Chautauqua Co., Kansas, Volume 1, page 625. Published 1987by Chautauqua Co., Heritage Association. Article furnished by Hylas and Myrtle Rathbun.
In 1870 a caravan of covered wagons descended on Chautauqua County, containing the Rathbun clan. The oldest members of this group were Edmund and Mary Dye Rathbun, the parents and grandparents of all those that came to Kansas at that time.

Edmund Rathbun was born in Saratoga, New York. He moved with his father into Ohio near Marietta. He learned the blacksmith trade there and then moved to Richland County, Ohio. It was in Richland that he metand married Mary Dye when he was 32 years old. They later moved to Jay County, Indiana. After some years, they moved to Worth County, Missouri. It was from Missouri that the family moved to Kansas, homesteading in the Moore Prairie Community.

Edmund and Mary Rathbun came to Kansas with their sons- Gideon and his wife Mary, Daniel and his wife Catherine, George Marshall and his wife Tamar Ann and their children, and Isaac and his wife. One daughter, Anna Jane, remained in Worth County, Missouri, where she married George Freeman.

It is interesting that each family homesteaded in the area, and builthomes with native stone.
Edmund Rathbun died in Chautauqua County on January 2, 1882, and his wife Mary died on February 14, 1889. They were both buried in the Moore Prairie Cemetery on land donated by their son Daniel.
