no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Yes, this is the same couple from Rudd, IA, they moved around alot. They ended up in California where my family comes from. As far as Lydia, sorry I don't know anything about her, she's not in my family tree. Seeing as she is listed as married, I would think she must have been there to help the family out, maybe one of the kids were sick. They all lived into adulthood, so they didn't die from a serious illness, maybe they caught something and needed a nurses help. I have found numberous times were a person is on a census in one house and then somewhere else that same year in a different house, they are listed on the census twice. Maybe she is listed elsewhere in the county or town that same year.
