I'm looking for anything on Colonel W.W. Smith and/or his wife Katherine/Cahterine/Kate or Cate ( I've found her 1st name spelled all these ways.) They lived in Clear Lake township in Section 36, they owned 160 acres. An old paper clipping states that my grandparents were married at this home in June 1911. The Clear Lake cemetery records have Irvine Smith son of W.W. & K.A Smith dod 1881 at age of 17. And next to that grave is a large stone accross the top says"Catherine A. Smith beloved wife of W.W. Smith dod 1912", bottom half says "W.W. Smith" . There is no death date on stone and cemetery records are inconclusive as to wether he is buried there or not. I'm looking for any information on them, other children they may have had, siblings, parents, complete birth or death dates. Was he really a colonel from the war. Anything would be helpful. Thanks for your time. Angie Denotter
