Barber Shops of Topeka, Kansas.

If your ancestor was a barber and lived in Topeka, for a time but you don't know when, now is your chance to find out..  There were many jobs that caused are ancestors to move on.  You know the old saying ( Here today gone tomorrow.)  Those who had jobs as a Laborer, Farmer Salesman, Carpenter and Barber, seem to move around a lot.

If your ancestor was a barber he may only lived in Topeka, a few months or a few years, then moved on. Then again he may have came to Topeka and lived out his life here, but you never knew he was a barber.

Note.  These names came from  Topeka City Directories  and are not in any yearly order.  You can do a name search on this page.

Important note.  These names were taken from the business section of the city directories.  These names are the Barber Shops owners and does not include the names of the barbers who work in the shops.

However the Directories of 1880, 1871, 1872 and 1899, does include all the barbers of Topeka.

All names on this post with addresses our Barber Shops owners and those without addresses are barbers who work in these shops.
