    Notes 
    • Tombstone gives birthdate as June 20. Obit says after her marriage they lived for a number of years in Winneshiek county, so I assume her children were mostly born there. Then they moved to Saskatchewan. However, there was a long stint in Minnesota somewhere in there because the obit also says she united with the Congregational church in MN and her mother's 1895 obit lists her as "of Minn." and she was there in 1880 and 1900; it looks like the Sask move didn't happen until 1905, so she lived there about 18 yrs.

      Obit says "She was a consistent christian to the end and bore three years of constant suffering with a divine patience."

    Probably taken in Howard or Winneshiek Co, Iowa between 1883 and 1893. Frank eventually settled in western Oregon; Emile in Vancouver, Washington after stints in Oregon, Iowa, Missouri, and Alberta, Canada; Darinda (Holt) in Saskatchewan, Canada; Oliver in Minneapolis, Minnesota; Alonzo and Perry stayed in the Winneshiek & Howard counties area of Iowa. After caring for their father Leven Wanless in Cresco, Howard Co, Iowa until his death in 1901, Elizabeth (Damon) and her family moved to La Grande, Oregon. The only child missing from this photo is Eldridge, the oldest son, who was probably in Arizona.
