I am seeking information on the “Mr. Snook” who married Daisey Alice (Boardman, Sanford, possibly Smith), date and location unknown.
My grandfather, Odessa DeWitt Boardman, son of Silas Boardman & Jane Serviss, had nine siblings, six of whom survived into adulthood: Luella (Lola) Ermina, Edith Marguerite, Arthur Thomas, Daisey Alice, Lillian Ruth and Bessie Florilla. While I have been able to research and document five of those siblings, their respective marriages, children and deaths, all on the West Coast in Oregon & California, I’ve uncovered little about Daisey.
Daisey Alice Boardman was born 25 Dec 1878 in La Crosse, La Crosse County, WI (Charlotte Goldthwaite, Boardman Genealogy 1525-1895, Published 1895, by William F. J. Boardman, Page 582).She married 1st Morton Sanford 20 Apr 1898 in La Crosse, La Crosse County, WI, son of Carleton Sanford and Sara Rose (Wisconsin Pre-1907 Marriage Registration, La Crosse County, Vol. 7, Page 363 #102). He was born Jun 1877 in Prairieville, Rice County, MN, and died Unknown. It appears their marriage may have ended quickly, as in 1900 Morton is enumerated living with his parents in Faribault with no mention of Daisey (ED 150, Sheet 2B, Faribault, Rice County, MN, 516 West 3rd St. 1 June 1900, Dwelling 5, Family 5).She may have married 2nd(Unknown) Smith. She married 3rd(Unknown) Snook(Dorothy Serviss Johnson, The Serviss & Hollenbeck and Thomson & Ross Families and Their Johnnycake Journey in North America, Excerpt: "Daisey Alice m. 1st Morton Sanford; m. 2nd Mr. Smith ?; m. 3rd Mr. Snook”). She may have died 09 Apr 1947 in Bellingham, Whatcom County, WA, aged 68 years, 3 months, 15 days (Washington Death Index, 1940-96. Washington State Archives, “Name: Daisey A Snook, Place of Death: Bellingham, Date of Death: 09 Apr 1947, Age: 68, Gender: F”). It is probable that the “Daisey A. Snook” in the Washington State Death Index is indeed, Daisey Alice Boardman. The coincidence of name, age at death, and even location as all of her siblings, with the exception of Odessa, followed their mother Jane and her 2nd husband, Albert Sage, to Oregon by way of Akron, Ohio, suggests that it is likely that Daisey moved west as well.
Because of the relative certainty of Daisey’s marriage to the mysterious Mr. Snook, who seems to have avoided the 1920 & 1930 censuses (which Daisey seems to have avoided as well), and the death reference to Daisey A. Snook in Washington State, I am seeking any information available about this marriage.
Any help would be appreciated.
