I need advice as to finding the full name on Clara P Higday's second marriage to a Johnson.
Clara P Higday was born 5 April 1878 to George S Higday and Lois L Kane in Kingsley Plymouth County, Iowa.
Clara married Abner Edward Thompson, born 9 March 1868 in Pleasant Springs, Dane, Wisconsin on 28 June 1894 in Akron, Iowa.
Abner Thompson was killed 6 Oct. 1900 in a Railroad accident.
Probate papers I have dated 1908 in Sioux City, Iowa has Clara still as Clara Thompson.
I have a Post Card, dated 10 Sept.1909 to Mrs. C. P. Johnson Kingsley, Iowa from a Cousin Polly from West Plains Mo.
I also have a picture to Clara P Johnson from Aunties, Flora and Myra on the back.
Something happened in Clara's life that she was placed in the mental Hospital in Cherokee, Iowa in 1917 by her Son Harold and her Sister Ramah Porch.
No mention of Mr. Johnson. What ever happened to Mr. Johnson could of been the reason for her being placed in the Hospital.
Clara died in the Hospital 9 May 1935 and is buried in a Thompson Plot in Cherokee, Iowa.
Any help would be appreciated.
