Laura always said she was born in 1894 but I saw her birth entry in the Van Wert County, Ohio Department of Health which is in 1893 and her marriage application in Adams County also says 1893.
Laura married Walter Elza Eichar 30 June 1912 in Adams County, Indiana. They had 4 children. After Walter died in 1945 she married Floyd Acker in 1950.
