I'm sorry for not getting back to you sooner, Linda. My best guess on the timeframe is 1907 to 1928. Mom was born in August 1915. I have a picture of her with her dog when she was about five years old. There is a barn, farmhouse and some outbuildings in the distance. Grandma's maiden name was Maxwell but I don't think any of her family lived in Elkton. She lived in central Iowa before moving to South Dakota. Her mother, Angeline, died in Aurora in 1906 but it is my understanding that she was just visiting. She and two of the children contracted scarlet fever. The children lived. I have a picture of Grandma and Grandpa taken in August 1925. On the back it says they were living on the Lynch place. Grandpa was a blacksmith. My aunt told me they were very poor and lived above the blacksmith shop. Mom said once that they lived on a farm near the McKain train stop. I do not know if it was the same place. Grandma and Grandpa are buried in the Aurora Cemetery.
