David Maybe you can help me find a Fant who was in St. Louis MO in the 1890s. David Bly lived in Knox Co. MO, and in 1880 his youngest daughter, Gertrude was 11 years old. His wife died in 1887 and he moved to Kansas City and then in 1892 entered the Soldiers Home at Leavenworth, KS. On his paper work his nearest relative is listed as Mrs Gertrude Fant, St. Louis, MO.David died in 1897.I cannot find any Fant in 1900 census in St. Louis and can't find a Gertrude Fant in any Missouri records. Do you have any clue who the Fant is that she married in Missouri in the late 1880s or early '90s?
