Nancy Simmons' mother-in-law was Almira B. Cryts who married Legrand Chesterfield O'Brien on 3 Oct 1878 in Stoddard County, Missouri. Almira was b. 31 Oct 1862 in Bloomfield, MO and d. 21 Dec 1931 in Winston-Salem, NC. She was the d/o William Franklin Cryts and Margaret E. Hill. Her sons' names were William Lee, Lex Cleveland and Leet Alexander O'Brien, not "Lut" as it is often incorrectly transcribed.
Almira was my first cousin, three times removed.
