I have an original 3-1/2”x5” cabinet card photograph signed “(with love) Frances Furnas - 1900”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and she looks to be about 20/22.

I found Frances in the 1886 Iowa census showing she was age 5, living with parents John M. and Mary E. in Belle Plaine (Benton Co.) IA. In 1900, the census of Franklin (Linn Co.) IA shows her with birthdate of Oct 1878, with same parents. Ancestry OneWorldTree shows Frances Edna Furnas born Oct 7, 1878 IA; died 18 Mar 1919 Plainville, CT. Her mother’s name was Mary Elizabeth Hutson. Frances was married in 1904 in “Manila” to Willard Arthur Goodell. In 1910, Frances and Willard lived in Brown Co., KS with one daughter.

Get back to me at if you are related to Frances Furnas Goodell.
