  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: "Descendants of Henry Rice Jerauld," email from Norma Roberts (undisclosed at example dot netm) to Weldon Whipple, 12 Sep 2009. Notes the following:
      • In 1881, Nettie, with her parents and siblings, settled in or near Auburn, Nemaha Co.,Nebraska.
      • After the death of her mother (Feb 1882), the family returned to Knox Co., Illinois, with the exception of her brother, William (15 years old), who remained in Nemaha County.
      • While in Illinois, she probably lived with her aunt and uncle, Harriet (Jerauld) and Abram L. Van Riper. When Abram and Harriet Van Riper, and their four children, settled in Arlington Township, Reno Co., Ks., in 1885, she went with them,leaving her family in Knox County, Ill.She is listed in the 1885 Kansas census as Nettie Gerald, age 14, living with her aunt, uncle and cousins.
      • She was 16 years old when she married. Her marriage license has the following notation written on it: "I, the protector and for the parent, approve this marriage and give consent to same. (Signed) A. Van Riper"
      • John Rhodes has in his possession two postcards written by Nettie to her children while she and Norman were visiting relatives out of state. One card is addressed to Miss Lucy Elsworth, Langdon, Reno co., Ks, and is postmarked Bronson (Branch County), Michigan, on 20 December 1908. Bronson is about 10 miles northeast of Burr Oak, in St Joseph County. They must have been visiting her sister-in-law, Alice. (Alice had already moved to Texas so what relative were they visiting?) The card reads;"Dear Daughter Lucy, I will answer your letter soon. This is the children school where we are. When you get out of things to eat go to town and get it. by-by Mrs. B. Elsworth". This postcard has a photo of a one-room schoolhouse on one side, with the female teacher and 17 students standing in front. The other postcard is addressed to Evan Elsworth, Langdon, Kansas, Reno Co. The card is post-marked Auburn, Nebraska, 12 November 1912, evidently mailed while visiting her brother, William Jerauld. It reads;"Don't write any more. We won't get it. Dear children, How are you all getting along. We are having a good visit. Meet us at Arlington Thursday. We will be there. Well this is all for this time. From Mother at night. Remember at night." One side of the postcard has a colorized photo of the Frisco Train Depot, at Paola, Kansas (perhaps purchased on a stop on their train travel).
      • One of Ida and Norman's children was just a little one and crawling when it died. Story goes that Ida had mixed up her bread and put it in a big pan to raise and had put the pan under the stove. She had stepped out to hang a load of wash on the cloths line and when she returned she found the little child had somehow pulled the pan from under the stove and had fell face down in the dough and had sufficated. I believe this child was Lawrence the second born child.
