I am trying to locate a family of an ancestor Flora Smith b.1860 in New york. She moved withher widow father to Wisconsin in 1864. I believe the family came to Portage in about 1880. They are on the 1870 census in Waupaca. I am trying to make a tree of decendants for Florah Smith. She is on the 1900 census married to a Gustof Rady with three of four children. two Etta and Earnest Hemler but I think is Heassler from all the marriage records that I have found on ancestry. I am trying to piece together were the family may have gone in 1901 the obit for Flora father says she is in Aberdeen, Washington. I cannot find them on the census. If anyone out there in Portage can help with this please contact me.

I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.

1870 - Flora Smith is not in Waupaca, WI

Flora did not have an obituary . She died in Idaho and was the widow of J W Webb. Flora was married a total of five times. When she died she only had one living son, Ernest
The last name was spelled Haessler and was German--It was Americanized and spelled Heassler, about 1860. Ferdinand's military records also show him as Fernando Hessler. (this is the same person as it shows same family members on his pension papers.)
