States: Wyoming: Sheridan
My gggAunt married an O.T. Smith in 1887 in Big Horn,WY. Her name was Emeline Fordice Stroud (she had been divorced or widowed---having been married first to J."Jack" B. Stroud in Big Horn, WY). Emeline was also known as Emily or Emma. Her brother-in-law, J. W. Austin (my ggggrandfather), built O.T. and Emeline a house in Sheridan County, WY, on Lower Prairie Dog, soon after their marriage. I know that Emeline died in 1937. I don't recall anyone ever mentioning her or her family...and I am curious about what happened to this branch of our family tree. O.T. would have been born in about 1865, unknown where, and Emily was born in about 1866, in Kansas. She came to WY in 1881 with her family (Austin, Fordice, Clark). Her mother, Martha Lumbert Fordice Clark, died in Shell, WY while living with or near her grandson, Myron Austin.
Does anyone have any knowledge of O.T. Smith or his wife, Emeline, who lived in WY in the late 1880's? I would appreciate any information or leads that you might be able to share with me.
