I am needing help with finding any inforamtion on the
family of Kittie Lawrence married to John R. SMITH 16
Jan 1884, Tama Co Ia.
they are on the 1885 Iowa census, the 1892 Tama City
census and 1900 Fed census for Tama city - record
shows she was born in WI, her father born in Ireland
and her mother born in England. I think there were
three children, Lauren, Vera and a dtr Pearl who was
possibly John's by his first wife..
Any information you can give me will be appreciatd.
Practice of confusing the dead & irritating the living.
I purchased a book at a garage sale some time ago. There is a signature on the fly page:
"Jenny e Benson, Gladbrook, Iowa, Nov. 13, 1895."
There was also a small calling card enclosed with the following signature and note.
On one side:
"Mrs. R. E. Gallion, or Gullion, Toledo, Iowa, June 5th, 1902.
Other side reads:
With pleasant memories of you in the 'Primary' and with pride and satisfaction in your present attainments, it gives me great pleasure to extend to you my congratulations and best wishes at this time, with assurance of my interest in your future welfare and success."
I would be happy to send a scan of these notes to anyone interested in these two people.
Please contact me privately.
