Census Data

     Robert Raymond and Mary J appeared on the 1871 Canadian Census of Vaughan Twp., York County, Ontario, enumerated 2 April 1871. Robert was enumerated as a hotel keeper. Their children Elizabeth, James, Catherine, Emmely and Frances were listed as living with them. As were three servants and Northrup J Peck, a dentist who would later marry their daughter, Elizabeth.7

Robert Raymond and Mary J Raymond appeared on the 1880 U.S. Federal Census of Independence, Buchanan County, Iowa, enumerated 11 June 1880, enumerated as a Hotel Keeper and she was a Laud(ry) Lady. Their children Kate and Frances were listed as living with them. As were their son-in-law and daughter, Elizabeth Peck and Northrup J Peck.10

Robert Raymond and Mary Ann Raymond appeared on the 1910 U.S. Federal Census of Independence, Washington Twp., Buchanan County, Iowa, enumerated 30 April 1910, enumerated as head of the household, with her own income. They had been married for 18 years, and it was Robert's second marriage. His grand-daughter, Helen Grant was included in the household.

On the census image he was originally listed as husband of Mary Ann Raymond who was enumerated on the last line of the previous page. This was struck out and Head was written in. However, since both Mary Ann and Robert were shown as being married 18 years, I believe they were in one household. Mary Anne had given birth to one child that was not living at the time of the census.4

     She immigrated in 1845 to USAG from England.5
     19 June 1900 Research notes:
According to the 1880 census, Robert H Smith had three children:

Henry M (1864 - ) born in Canada

Jennie M (1866 - ) born in Illinois

Mertie (1874 - ) born in Iowa


The 1885 Iowa State census shows four children:

Henry M (Abt 1865 - ) born in Canada

Jennie M (Abt 1867 - ) born in Illinois

Mertie (Abt 1875 - ) born in Delaware County, Iowa

Libbie (Abt 1882 - ) born in Delaware County, Iowa


According to the 1900 census, Robert's wife, Tamison was the mother of three children, with two still living. Only Libie (born Aug 1881 in Iowa) remained at home.

Since the 1885 census lists four children, perhaps Henry M had a different mother, but the 1900 census indicates that Robert H and Tamison were married about 1863, before Henry was born.4,5,7

Married in Chicago Tuesday at High Noon -- A Pretty Wedding
At high noon on Tuesday occurred the marriage of Mr. Edward Smith, Jr., of this place, to Miss Gertrude Dawson of Chicago, at the home of the latter's parents at 2086 Gladys Avenue.

Rev. T. R. White performed the ceremony, which was witnessed only by the near relatives of the two families.

The house was artistically decorated for the occasion, the bridal party standing in front of a mantle banked with palms, asparagus ferns and carnations.

The bride was attired in a beautiful gown of white brittania mull with lace trimmings and carried a boguet (sic) of bridel (sic) roses.

Immediately following the ceremony, a delightful luncheon of several courses was served.

The bride is a prominent member of the Presbyterian church and for the past several years has been a most successful teacher in the intermediate department of the high school here. She is a young lady who is much admired for her strength of character and goodness of heart and has a large following of friends.

The groom is one of the most prosperous and best known young men in the village, whose industrious habits and sterling worth have won for him much deserved praise.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith will return to Winnebago Saturday, and in a short time will commence housekeeping in a fine new home which has just been completed for them.

(handwritten date - July 8, 1902 - This was a Tuesday, so is probably the wedding date - Rick Moffat.)13

     In the obituary of Susan Gertrude Dawson who died 7 May 1904, husband, Edward Smith was listed as a survivor.14
     The following newspaper article appeared We Remember, (2002), originally published circa 8 September 1905 :
STOLE A MARCH
The many friends of Edward Smith were agreeably surprised to hear of his marriage which was solomized at the home of the bride, Miss Alice Dawson in Chicago last Thursday. Their marriage was strictly on the q.t. order and even his most intimate friends did not suspect anything until they saw an article announcing their marriage in the Chicago papers.

Mr. Smith is one of our most popular young men of the village and the bride is equally as well known, having taught to the public school of this place for several years.

The newly married couple left at once for an extended Eastern and Canadian trip after which they will make their home at the residence of the groom in the village. The REFLECTOR extends congratulations.

Note (Rick Moffat) - Sept 7, 1905 was a Thursday, supporting the wedding data given by other sources.15

     The following newspaper article appeared in in a clipping in one volume of the series originally published 8 July 1902 :
Married in Chicago Tuesday at High Noon -- A Pretty Wedding
At high noon on Tuesday occurred the marriage of Mr. Edward Smith, Jr., of this place, to Miss Gertrude Dawson of Chicago, at the home of the latter's parents at 2086 Gladys Avenue.

Rev. T. R. White performed the ceremony, which was witnessed only by the near relatives of the two families.

The house was artistically decorated for the occasion, the bridal party standing in front of a mantle banked with palms, asparagus ferns and carnations.

The bride was attired in a beautiful gown of white brittania mull with lace trimmings and carried a boguet (sic) of bridel (sic) roses.

Immediately following the ceremony, a delightful luncheon of several courses was served.

The bride is a prominent member of the Presbyterian church and for the past several years has been a most successful teacher in the intermediate department of the high school here. She is a young lady who is much admired for her strength of character and goodness of heart and has a large following of friends.

The groom is one of the most prosperous and best known young men in the village, whose industrious habits and sterling worth have won for him much deserved praise.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith will return to Winnebago Saturday, and in a short time will commence housekeeping in a fine new home which has just been completed for them.

(handwritten date - July 8, 1902 - This was a Tuesday, so is probably the wedding date - Rick Moffat.)14

     The following obituary appeared in a clipping in one volume of the series We Remember, (2002), originally published circa 8 May 1904:
Mrs. Edward Smith, Jr., departed this life at her home in the village last Saturday evening, May 7, at 5:45 o'clock. She had been rapidly failing for the past two weeks and while it had been known for some time that life with we was at the ebb, yet her death was a great shock to the community.

Mrs. Smith's death was the result of a complication of diseases, and her illness dates back a year ago last March. She had many ups and downs during this time and was a great sufferer but bore it all with courage, cheerfulness and true Christian fortitude. She was conscious up to a few hours before the end.

Miss Gertrude Dawson was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, March 12, 1865, and was thus aged 39 years, 1 month and 25 days. The family moved to Illinois when she was a young girl and Miss Dawson attended and graduated from the Rockford High School. She taught School in various parts of the state for 16 years, the last 7 being spent in the Winnebago schools, where she had charge of the Intermediate department. On July 8, 1902, she was married at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Hance, in Chicago, to Edward Smith, Jr., and has since been really one of us. Surviving her are , besides the husband, her mother, step-father and three sisters, Mrs. Frank Luther and Mrs. Lewis Richardson of Chicago, and Miss Alice Dawson of Winnebago.

Mrs. Smith was a member of the Presbyterian church and previous to her affliction was not only actively identified with the work of the curch but took a prominent part in the affairs of the Christian Endeavor society. As a school teacher she was unusually successful, and her name is a household word in many homes throughout the community. She was blessed with a sweet and lovable disposition, and her untimely death is a sad blow to the relatives and large circle of friends.

Funeral services were held last Monday afternoon; 1:30 from the house and 2 o'clock from the Presbyterian church. The services were largely attended; the teachers and pupils of the Winnebago school attending in a body. Rev. T. R. White officiated, and using the words, "To Die is Gain," for his text paid an eloquent tribute to the memory and pure Christian life of the deceased. Several beautiful selections were rendered by Mesdames Newton and Mellen, and the floral tributes, many being from former pupils, were unusually numerous.

Interment was in the Winnebago cemetery and the pall bearers were Messrs. Marien Watson, Joseph Love, Hugh McMichael, Jr., Tom Smith, Hugh Parsons and Will White.11

STOLE A MARCH
The many friends of Edward Smith were agreeably surprised to hear of his marriage which was solomized at the home of the bride, Miss Alice Dawson in Chicago last Thursday. Their marriage was strictly on the q.t. order and even his most intimate friends did not suspect anything until they saw an article announcing their marriage in the Chicago papers.

Mr. Smith is one of our most popular young men of the village and the bride is equally as well known, having taught to the public school of this place for several years.

The newly married couple left at once for an extended Eastern and Canadian trip after which they will make their home at the residence of the groom in the village. The REFLECTOR extends congratulations.

First Wife Sues Estate.

Declares She Was Illegally Divorced From Michigan Philanthropist.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------

MENOMINEE. Mich., May 5 (AP).--A million dollars is at stake in the suit of Mrs. Margaret Isadora Lloyd of Los Angeles against the estate of her former husband, Marshall Burns Lloyd, inventor, philanthropist, and manufacturer. The case is set for trial here Monday.
Mrs. Herietta B. [P.] Lloyd, second wife; Isaac B. Lipson of Chicago and the Detroit Trust Company, executors of the will, are defendants.
The plaintiff seeks the $1,000,000 as her rightful share as the widow of the millionaire. Her suit is based on the contention that she was illegally divorced by Mr. Lloyd and she was his lawful wife at the time of his death last August.
