My name is Phil Hayes. I am new to the list and am researching the
Smith's of Humboldt, Iowa. I know very little about them and the only
known surviving person who knows anything about them, is elderly and
does not want to talk about it. Her husband father abandoned her and
her mother and sisters.
I am hoping someone here know something about this Smith family.
Other relatives want to learn more about the family they never knew.
My wife's great grandfather was Frank Edward Smith (b. abt 1894 in
Humboldt). He moved to New York and married my wifes grandmother back
in the 1920's.
Frank Edward Smith is the son of Gregg Smith (b. 1864 in New York) and
Julia Geeslin (b. abt 1869). Frank had 5 bothers and sisters. Carrie,
Leeta, John W. Benjamin H and Sumner (or Summer). The lived in
Webster City after moving from Humboldt.
I have them in the 1880 census and most of them in the 1900 census.
For some reason Frank and Sumner are not mentioned in the 1900 Census.
By 1910, Julia divorced Gregg. Don't know what happened to him. She
appears to have renamed someone named Davis.
If anybody has ANY info that would help me learn more about them or
has suggestions as to where I should look, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.
