Sharing Memories Sunday - Mrs. Ella Preston


Sharing Memories Sunday - Mrs. Ella Preston

It is interesting what catches the eye reading the hometown newspaper:

From the 100 Years Ago column in the Coon Rapids Enterprise of June 21, 2012:

June 7 1912:
Mrs. Ella Preston fell Tuesday
morning while putting up screens
to the windows of her home and
fractured one of her legs below
the knee. Dr. Jewell was called
and reports the patients as doing
well.

This is my great-grandmother (Dad's mother's mother) - she lived alone in a house in Coon Rapids, Iowa. Dr. Jewell lived four houses away, according to the 1910 census. She was 62 years old.




She died on June 25, 1912. Perhaps she wasn't doing as well as the Dr. thought...  ?  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
