Elsie has written to me concerning her family. Her parents were married in Missouri when her mother was 15 years of age and her father 19 years of age. They were the parents of seven children, six girls and one boy. Elsie was the youngest. The brother was next to the oldest, and he died when he was ten years old, so Elsie never saw him. After living in Missouri for a few years, Elsie's parents moved to Central Kansas, where Elsie was born; they lived there until Elsie was 15 and then moved further west where Elsie and Bill met. Elsie was 23 when her mother died, at age 62.
