In Reply to: trying to find out where my Great Grandfather died: by Charleen Schuster of 572

Hi Charleen,
I first found Hiram in 1880 in Kilkenny, Le Sueur Co., MN.
H. F., b. IA, 22 yrs old, farmer.
Blance [spelling on index], b. VT, 21.
Edward, son, b. IA, 2.

In 1895 the family was living in Pleasant, Smith Co., KS.
H. F., b. IA, 36.
B. A., b. MA, 34.
E. A., son, b. IA, 17.
Norton, b. MN, 10.
M. M., dau, b. MN, 8.
F. A., son, b. MN, 4.

In 1900 the family was living in Montgomery, Wright Co., MO.
Hiram F., b. IA April 1858, marr 24 yrs, farmer.
Blanche, b. MA Aug 1860, had given birth to six children but five alive in 1900.
Henry N., b. MN Nov 1887.
Mary M., b. MN Oct 1886.
Fred A., b. MN March 1891.
Hiram B., b. MO Aug 1896.

Louis E and Nettie Pickett were neighbors.

In 1920 Hiram and Louisa were living in Sams Valley, Jackson Co., OR.
Hiram F. Pickett, b. IA, 61, general farmer.
Louisa A. Pickett, b. NY, 62.
Daniel D. Detenger, b. NM, 8, grandson.
Bertha Pickett, b. KS, 14, foster daughter.

In 1930 Hiram was living in Willows, Glenn Co., CA.
Hiram F., b. IA, 72, 1st marr @ 19, retired.
Anna E., b. NY, 73, 1st marr @ 20, servant county hospital.
Donald, grandson, b. Mexico, 18, American citizen, electrician battery store.

I believe that Louisa and Anna are the same person since both Censuses show her parents born in Germany.

Blanche H. Pickett died 10 Jan 1946, Klamath Co per death cert #942. Source: OR Death Index 1903-98, www.ancestry.com.

You can request a copy of her obituary from the Klamath Basin Genealogy Society, www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~orkbgs/ ; or from the Oregon Library System, www.oregonlibraries.net/ . Ask them which Library in Klamath Co. provides an obituary service.

An Anna Louise Pickett b. 16 Dec 1856, NY died 18 May 1947, Glenn Co., CA. Father's Surname=Stratmoer. Source: CA Death Index 1940-97, www.ancestry.com.

I didn't find anything on Hiram but I bet he died in Glenn Co. I'd do a search for the Glenn County Genealogy Society and if they do research, they can look him up in the CA Death Index. Successful Searching!
