States: Missouri: Laclede
I'm looking for more info on Mary E. Smelser. She was married to William Fred Hempel in Arroll, Missouri in the Township of Date on Oct. 29, 1924. Her mother's name was Susanna Jane Wright and her father's name was Charles Isaac Smelser. I have some info that indicates (but may be inaccurate) that her will was probated in Lebanon, Missouri in Laclede County in 1977.
Mary claimed that her mother (or possibly grandmother) was a Native American, possibly from the Cherokee tribe. So any information regarding that would be appreciated.
