Samuel and Frances had four children, three living until adulthood. I have to wonder if having 14 siblings made Frances want to keep her own family small.
Samuel was a farmer and Frances was a housewife. She was very involved in the Methodist church and was in several church clubs. She lived in the country near Morton, Missouri until her later years when she moved to Hardin, Missouri.
Frances died in Hardin, Missouri on November 3, 1931 and is buried with her husband in Lavelock Cemetery, just north of Hardin.
Based on the above information, I have the following due-outs for Frances:
1. Try to definitively list her siblings.
2. Find an obituary.
