Looking for information on a woman named Sophie Robinson who lived in De Soto, Jefferson County, MO in 1915. She is mentioned in a newspaper article in Belleville, Illinois where she visited her sister after a 35 year separation. She and another sister, Mrs. W M Price, from Salt Lake City (and previously Milford, Beaver County) Utah made a surprise visit to their sister, Elizabeth (Lizzie) Kirkpatrick (formerly Welles and possibly nee Miller) in June 1915. The article states that Sophie Robinson came with her “small son” and Mrs. W M Price came with her husband. No further information on their names or ages or anything! I have the article if it would help anyone to see it.
The article states that they had all been raised on a farm in Jefferson County and that they had been separated by marriages 35 years earlier (about 1880).
Mrs. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Kirkpatrick had been previously married to Jackson Welles. The only marriage record I can find that matches this gives Lizzie’s maiden name as Miller. However, I cannot find any Millers with three daughters including Lizzie and Sophie. I still don’t have the first name of the third sister as I cannot identify her in any Utah census.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
