Thank you for your response. Yes, I live in Ottertail County, MN. Yes, I have seen the graves of Emily Smith and her daughter, Mary Ann, here. Yes, I have the land records showing the farm that GeorgeR. Smith once owned east of town. Yes, I have talked to the current owner of that farm land. The building site of George R. Smith's farm was gone long before this couple purchased that property. Yes, I have seen the Ottertail County census that shows that Lewis Homer Smith was born in 1874. I was surprisedwhen you said Lewis Homer Smith married in Ramsey, MN, in 1885. That would mean he was married at the age of 11! I am trying to locate one of his descendants that might help me to identify some pictures that were passed on down to me. MaryLu in Ottertail County, MN.
