Janet--Reno; C.R.I.P. R.R. 1887; located between Arlington and 

Jaqua was located near the southern border of Cheyenne county and 
very close to the west border.  The town lost its post office in 1919. 

In looking over the various Kansas pages on the Internet, I found your
name several times.  My great-great grandparents lived nearby Jaqua,
Kansas, in Cheyenne County in the 1880's.  I've never been able to find
whatever might be left of the small town.  My grandmother used to say
that it was west of St. Francis and a little south.  Any ideas?
