Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 21, 1881
Michigan, USA
Death: Oct. 10, 1968
Shiawassee County
Michigan, USA

Nora's mother died a few months after giving birth to her. Leah Nora was then raised by Mark & Elizabeth Boice as their own child. Mark was a brother to Benjamin, Nora's father. Benjamin soon afterward moved to South Dakota and married Mary Ellen Towle. It is not known at this time why he never went back for his daughter, but Benjamin's children from his second wife appear to have known they had a half-sister in Michigan.
