I do have some information that I think you will be interested in, if you don't already have it. Charles L. is listed in the 1900 Allen Co. census as the son of John and Catherine Smead. Brothers and Sisters of Charles L. include John F., Mary E.,and Marguarite. John H. And Catherine are listed as the godparents of my grandfather John L. Smead's baptismal records. And yes, they were Catholic.
John H.'s father was John Milton Smead of Fort Wayne, IN. John Milton is also the father of my GG Grandfather Edward C. Smead. Hello cousin.
I have a web site on myfamily.com that has a lot of Smead and Smead related information. If you are interested I will send you an invitation to the site. My emal address is email@example.com
