Name: Lester Smith
Estimated Year of Birth: 1889
It says he was born in Wisconsin, but I don't know . . .

Wife: Bertha Smith (Maiden name is Butt). She is from Germany.

Children: Evelyn (married last name is Pastor), Ruth Meta (husband is Russell X. Peterson), Earl, Delpha (husband Harold Holmquest), DeEtte Louise (husband Francis Moccardine).

I think all of their children are born in Wisconsin.

-Evelyn (abt. 1910-1962)
-Ruth (Feb. 4, 1911-June 15,1994)
-Earl (born in abt. 1914)
-Delpha (1919-2004)
-DeEtte (May 6,1922-March 2,2004)


Thank you for your help!!!

Hi,
I am a research volunteer, not related.
I have a guess for you to check out.
(this is a fact though... Bertha (d. 1948) and Lester (d. 1943) are buried in Nola Cemetery, Park Falls, Price Co. found on findagrave)

The guess is based on WWI draft reg. Since the first census that Lester (sometimes written as Less) is found was 1910 in Price Co and stayed in Price Co till death. Couldn't find him in 1900.
The only name close registered in Price Co, Wi. (with a wife and 3 children) Ferdinand DeLessie Smith. b 27 Mar 1889 in Waupaca, Wi.

Hope this gives you some clues to work with.. good luck
Judy

Checked 1900 Waupaca Co.
There is a Ferdinand Smith b. Mar 1889 in the household of Enoch and Amelia Smith. They had been married for 35 years, had 11 children with 9 living.

Thank you for the help!

I have no idea who Lester's parents are.
But that seems right?

There is a tree on ancestry for Enoch Smith, that connects Ferdinand DeLessie or DeLessey Ferdinand Smith to Bertha Butt. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a contact name for you to trade info with.
