Laura Ann Calkins father's name was Stephen Calkins born abt. 1836. died June 12, 1862 in the Civil War and is buried in Corinth, Mississippi, where he died. her mother was Malinda (McBee) Calkins. She was born abt. 1836 and died March 2, 1860 and is buried in Freemont Cemetery in Cass, Jones Co., Iowa, by her parents, Lemuel and Eleanor (Frakes) McBee. In the 1870 Census for Cass, Jones, Iowa it shows Laura Ann living with her Grandparent, Calvin Calkins. her Grandmother, Mary Ann (Arnold) Calkins was not in the census, so she passed away by the time Laura Ann was twelve years old. Does anyone have more info on the McBee line?
