Illinois, USA
Death: Dec. 8, 1958

Dtr of August & Albertina Glawe Blankenfield born in rural Geneseo. Married Irad Lewis Asher 24 Aug 1918 in Davenport's St John's Methodist Church.
Irad and Flora lived in both Geneseo and Davenport and had a dtr in each city. In 1946 Flora and oldest dtr Marian Louise moved to Geneseo. Irad stayed in Davenport to take care of blind mother Agnes May Noble Asher who had been deserted by husband Lewis when Irad and siblings were very young. Lewis was a railroad man and his whereabouts are unknown today (2008). I have written a letter to the regional railroad pension office in Peoria in 2007 but they never responded.
Irad and Flora had dtr May Elizabeth 21 Sept 1919 who died in her high school freshman year of pneumonia and is buried in Geneseo, Henry, IL North Cemetery with Irad and Flora.
In 1985, dtr Marian Louise Asher Keag is living in Mesa, AZ married to Dale Herbert Keag also from rural Geneseo born 26 Mar 1926 to Andrew Johnston and Edna Pearl Lewis Keag.
