I'm looking for info on Horace Rood. He and his second wife, Lillian, lived in Granite, ID. He died 21 June 1943 and is buried in Sandpoint. I'm interested in what became of Lillian and if they had any children together.

I did not find the obit on him today but did find this later so will try again:

Idaho Death Index shows:

ROOD, HORACE GREELEY Place of Death: SANDPOINT Certif #132376 Birth Date: 06/18/1850 Death Date: 01/21/1943

It also showed the following:

ROOD, LILLIE LEOTA SHOSHONE 054937 04/02/1882 09/21/1926
ROOD, LILY OROFINO 041039 99/99/1867 01/17/1923

I could not see where he was buried in Sandpoint but that just may mean there was no readable tombstone when I did the transcriptions.

And then I found the following using the "Family Tree" link above. . .:) Explains why I can't find him in Bonner County. . .He was buried elsewhere!!

It appears that LILLIE LEOTA ROOD, SHOSHONE 054937 is the Lillian I am looking for. The Sun Prairie, WI, Countryman newspaper, March 28, 1901, provided the following:

Miss Lillian L. Flint invited a few intimate friends to a surprise party.... When all had assembled Miss Flemming... struck up the wedding march and Miss Flint and Mr. Horace G. Rood took their places...and Rev. D. C. Smith read the service which made the two man and wife.

In 1913 Lillian was attacked by a "maniac" near her home in Granite, and it wasn't clear to me whether she had survived the attack.

I'd be interested in anything more that is known about either Lillian or Horace.

Horace's brother, Harvey, was my grandfather. Lillian's sister, Jessie, was a school teacher who taught both my parents.

In doing research regarding my home in Idaho, I was trying to look for information for Horace Rood (he was the original land owner). It's not a lot of information regarding him, but I do have my original deed (as original as it gets) with his name on it if you are interested.
