Ethel Rose SMITH

According to family lore, Ethel (my great grand aunt) was the much doted upon sister of my much loved great grandfather Charles Lesley SMITH.  Ethel lost her mother Mary, at the age of 25 years, three years before her first child was born.  Her father remarried seven years later to Margery Alvina TEETER.  Ethel’s father WSmith, Ethel Rose 3illiam died from complications from a train accident when she was 44 years old.  She was survived by her brother Charlie. Ethel died just over six months after the death of her husband Cliff.   Ethel was enumerated in the 1900 census in Standish, Arenac, MI living with her father and mother.[1]  They were enumerated in the 1910 census in Monarch, Cascade, MT.[2]  The family was enumerated in the 1920 census taken in Lebam, Pacific, WA.[3]  In the 1930 census she was living in Seattle, King, WA at 4516 Seattle Street with her husband and children. The final census available was the 1940 census taken in Holden, Chelan, WA.[4]
