Silas Smith, b.1820NY, wife Laura Tucker, b.1831, lived Manitowoc Co., WI
I have an original 3-generation Cabinet Card photograph of “Silas and Laurie Tucker Smith with daughter (Rolletta) and Joseph (Rappel) and their children Marcus and Hattie”, and I’d like to get the picture back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Manitowoc, WI in about 1891-1892, as baby Hattie looks about one year old. Silas was abt age 80, wife Laura abt age 70, their daughter Rolletta was abt 24, her husband Joseph Rappel about 30, and the grandchildren were Marcus, abt 3 and Hattie, abt 1.
I found all six people living together in the 1900 Manitowoc Co., WI census, showing Silas born NY May 1820, Laura, born NY Jul 1831, Joseph Rappel, born WI 1862, Rolletta (Smith) Rappel born NY (or WI per 1870 census) in Feb 1867, Marcus born Jul 1888 and Hattie born Jun 1890. Tombstones in Manitowoc Co. show Silas died 1900, Laura 1904, Joseph 1937 and Rolletta 1854. Their son Marcus died in Arenac Co., MI 1948. In 1940 census, Rolletta was living with her son Silas in Sonoma Co., CA.
