Hello, I am not related. hope this helps. RP

From what I found, Sue was born in Rhinelander, Oneida County, Wisconsin on Feb. 3, 1891. Her first name was not listed. Father was Geo. Smith. No mother listed.

During the 1900 census, the family was living in Sedro-Woolley, Skagit County, Washington. Sue (Suzette), had 2 sisters, Vernie (born Wisconsin) & Gertrude (born Michigan), and a brother Charles(born Michigan). Her mother was Josie.

During the 1910 census, the family lived in Trofton, Snohomish, Washington. George either died between 1900 & 1910, or they divorced, because Josie was now married to a John Mitchel. They were only married 1 year in 1910.

During the 1920 census, the family lived in (indexed as Tafton), Trofton, Snohomish, Washington. Josie most likely divorced John Mitchel, even though she was listed as a widow. She used her 1st husband's last name in this census. Vernie was now gone from this census. Did she marry? or die?

During the 1930 census, Charles was now married & still lived in (indexed as Tafton) Trafton, Snohomish, Washington. Wife Mary, & 2 children Michael & Thomas. Josie was the next family down on the same census page as Charles. She was listed as divorced, with her last name as Smith again. Gertrude is now gone from this census. I couldn't find her as Gertrude Alezander. Maybe she was married to someone else at this time?

Maybe you can find marriage & death records in Snohomish County. Not all indexes are online at familysearch.org. I couldn't find any on this website.

I did find a Josephine Smith that died 20 Aug 1953 in Snohomish County. Age is very close. Maybe an obit will prove one way or the other.

All info comes from Ancestry.com, except the birth record from familysearch.org
