Sep. 28, 1918 Waterloo Black Hawk County Iowa, USA
When she was about five years old, she was sent to live with her grandparents (Harm and Idke Rewerts Schmidt) in Hastings, Adams Co, Nebraska. Ida's granddaughter told me that Ida was raised by Simon and Ida Schmidt Van Boening. They didn't marry until 1881. I'm guessing that Ida Elizabeth lived with her grandparents until after Ida Schmidt married Simon and then they took her and raised her.
