Cady family 1895 Cerro Gordo Co IA-Frank D. & Harriet A
I need information on this CADY Family shown in the 1895 census of Cerro Gordo Co IA. Parents, Frank and Harriet (Gardner-Young Cady probably divorced. Were the children placed in foster care? Children as follows:
JAMES B 1882 (WAS A YOUNG NOT A CADY, THE SON OF WILLIAM A. YOUNG who was hung about the time of his birth possibly in SD in 1883)
ROBERT D. CADY born 1887
LIZZIE M. b 1893.
Harriet A. the mother of all the children had married first to William Young and after his death she married Frank D. Cady. In 1917 Harriet "ran off" to be with another man named William K. Smith. Does this sound like any family history you may have heard of in your family? Harriet (Gardner) Young was my great grandmother. She left at least two of her children with Young family members of Clear Lake, IA. My Grandmother, Alice Maud and a son William named for his father. What happened to the boy James, a true son of William. He was 13 in the census of 1895? Any help greatly appreciated! Much to share. Sincerely, Marjorie Bednarek, [email protected]
