I have connected with a descendant of Rev. Ira N. Pardee and Mary Lucinda Winchell. Unfortunately she doesn't have much knowledge of the pioneer generation to the Mid-West. She was able to tell me that their daughter Eva had red hair.
Eva W. Pardee married Harold Chester Peters 11 October 1893 in Cortland, NY. Their sons were Harold Pardee Peters and Chester Lewis Peters, both born in Sioux City, IA. Harold passed away in that city 2 July 1950.
Eva lived to be 103 years old, passing away 18 Jan 1974. Is it my imagination or does she look to be a high-spirited woman?
Her great-great-great-granddaughter was tickled to finally have information on her family.
