Birth: Dec. 15, 1879
Death: Aug. 5, 1973

Grace Mae Simon was born Dec 15, 1878 (in MO, probably Carterville) and died Aug 5, 1973 at Carterville, MO. She was the daughter of Jacob Elam Simon & Frances Curl Simon, my great grandparents.

Grace had the following siblings: Nancy (Nannie Belle), Stella Gertrude (died young), Edward Michael (my grandfather), Harry "Dick", Susan E. (died young), Lena (or perhaps Eva Lena - died young), Mary Acelia & John Reger.

Grace was only 14 years old when her father died in "a freak wagon accident" in Carterville in 1892.

Grace married Lewis Hiram Root and they had 5 children: Thomas, Edward (called Eddie), Joseph (called Jodie), Hugh (called Buck) and Irene.

According to Grace's obit, which appeared in the Webb City Sentinel on Aug 10, 1973, she died on a Sunday afternoon at Elmhurst, where she had been a patient since 1966. Survivors include her daughter Irene and son Buck, 2 brothers: Dick & John, 4 grandchildren & 5 great grand-children.
