Surnames: Stratton, Nies
An Albert Stratton married Maud E. Osburn Jan. 2, 1893, Moscow, Latah Co., ID. Source: Idah Marriage Index 1842-96. Record can be found in the Marriage Book, Latah County Court House, Vol. P-1, p. 265.

If you want a copy of the record, you can find a volunteer at Random Acts Genealogical Kindness. Go to, read guidelines, choose Idaho, choose Latah Co. and choose Barbara.

In 1900 Albert, Millie and children were living in East Moscow, Latah Co., ID.
Albert E. Stratton, head household, b. SD Jan. 1866, marr 8yrs, farmer.
Millie E., wife, b. IA April 1874.
Edna Osborn but Osborn marked out and Stratton written in, b. WA, stepdau, May 1890.
Charles, b. ID Nov 1893.
Clarance, b. ID July 1895.
Frank, b. ID May 1898.
Lucy, b. ID Mar 1900.
Samuel Stratton, father, b. NY Nov 1820, widow, farmer.

An Edna Osborn married Frank M. Shaw Sept. 28, 1915, Shoshone, LIncoln Co., ID. Source: Idah Marriage Index 1842-96. Record at Lincoln Co. Court House, Vol. 2, p. 383.

There is no RAOGK volunteer in LIncoln Co. You can do a Google search on the Court House & contact them directly. I do recommend finding this record since the index has so little info.

In 1920 Frank, Edna and daughter were living in Boise, Ada Co., ID.
Frank M. Shaw, b. UT, 24, manager life insurance.
Edna F., wife, b. IA, 25, both parents b. Wisconsin.
Maxine, b. ID, 2.
Claud Slattery, boarder.

I'm not sure if this is your Edna or not.

Sometime before 1910 Albert and Maud/Millie had divorced. In 1910 Albert and boys were living in Harrison, Kootenai Co., ID.
Albert Stratton, b. NY, 43, divorced, fireman saw mill.
Charley, b. ID, 16.
Clarence, b. ID, 14.
Frank, b. ID, 12.

In 1920 Albert and children were living in Chatcolet, Benewah Co., ID.
Albert E. Stratton, b. NY, 52, widower, logging contractor.
Charles R., b. ID, 26, logging timber, single.
Clarence A., b. ID, 24, logging timber, single.
Frank W., b. ID, 21, single, logging timber.
Lucille M., b. ID, 19, single, housekeeper logging camp.
Rest of the folks listed were boarders.

In 1930 Albert was living by himself in Chatcolet.
Albert E. Stratton, b. NY, 66, widower, farmer.

An Albert Edward Stratton b. Jan 24, 1865 died May 4, 1940, St. Marie, Benewah Co. per death cert #119250. Source: Special Collections, Brigham Young University Idaho,

You can request a copy of his obituary from RAOGK.

A Charles Richard Stratton married Thelma Campbell 15 Jan 1927, Plummer, Benewah Co. Document filed in Benewah Co. Court House, Marriage Book Vol. 2, p. 13. Source: Special Collections, .

You can find a volunteer to look it up at RAOGK.

In 1930 Charles, Thelma and daughter wee living in Benewah, Benewah Co., ID.
Charles Stratton, b. ID, 36, marr @ 33, forman logging camp.
Thelma, wife, b. WA, 21, marr @ 18.
Elmira, dau, b. ID, 1 11/12ths.

I couldn't find death information on any of these folks. There isn't a genealogy society in Benewah Co. You can contact the Idaho State Historical Society, and they do do research.

A Lucille Stratton married R. E. Sherry 3 Jan 1928, Mackay, Butte Co., ID. Document filed Butte Co. Court House, Marriage Book Vol. 1, p. 214. Source: Brigham Young University Idaho, .

The Idaho Marriage Index says they were married in Mackay, Custer Co., ID but the record is filed in Butte County Court House, Vol. 1, p. 214.

There isn't a RAOGK volunteer in Butte Co. but you can contact the Court House and ask for a copy.

A Glen Hederson married a Thelma Stratton Aug. 5, 1931, Preston, Bear Lake Co., ID. Source: Idaho Marriage Index 1842-1996. Record filed Bear Lake Co. Court House, Marriage Book, Vol. 2, p. 508.

You'll definitely want a copy of this record to determine if this Thelma was previously married to Albert or Charles. Use RAOGK, look in Bear Lake Co. and contact Clint.

In 1920 David, Thelma and boys Nies were living in Kootenai, Bonner Co., ID.
David V. Neis, b. ND, 27, brakeman railroad.
Thelma, wife, b. IA, 19.
Victor B., b. MN, 2.
Myron W. b. ID, 3/12ths.

In 1930 Frank Stratton and family were living in St. Maries, College Precinct, Benewah Co., ID.
Frank W. Stratton, b. ID, 31, marr @ 23, contractor Logging.
Thelma I., wife, b. IA, 29, marr @ 20.
Wendall M. Stratton [Neis?], stepson, b. ID, 10.
Frank, son, b. ID, 6.
Ellen, dau, b. ID, 4.
Glen, son, b. ID, 4/12ths.

I couldn't find Frank and Thelma's death info. Might be because Idaho doesn't release death info unless 50 years after the death.

A Frank F. Stratton married Cora Ethel Lawyer March 3, 1948, Idaho Falls, Bonneville Co., ID. Source: Idaho Marriage iNdex 1842-96. Document filed Bonneville County Court House, Marriage Book, Vol. 9, p. 207. I think this is Frank's son.

Go to RAOGK, Bonneville Co. and request copy from volunteer listed.

A Glen E. Stratton (24) of Hurrican, Washington Co., Utah married Dora Karen Bringhurst(19) of Toquerville, Washington Co., UT 14 June 1957 at St. George, Washington Co., UT. Source: Brigham Young University, , Volume G, p. 34, cert #5598 St. George Temple [Mormon Church].

I'm not related; just love the search. Successful Searching!
