Harrison b: 1905 in IA ........ 2 Harry E. Kivett b: November 17, 1910 in NE d: June 19, 1988 in Los Angeles Co., CA
Since many of Blanche's family lived in Liberty Twp., Gage Co., NE, I assume that is where the young couple married, but by 1910, they were in Wilber Precinct and remained there for the 1920 census.AFter Nathan's death, his widow and three children went to Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie Co., IA to live near her widowed mother.
So I have 2 decades that I would like to investigate for KIVETTs.Nathan was listed as a cigar maker, hardly a dangerous occupation, but he died at 60.Could there have been an accident at the factory?
