Laura moved to Burnet Co., WI and is listed in the 1900 census forMeenon Township, Burnet Co., WI
and was living there at the time ofher mother Margaret's death in 1907.  She is listed in the
obituary asbeing from Kruger, Burnet Co., WI.  Kruger is an unincorporated cityin Meenon Township
located two miles south of Webster, WI on TrunkHighway 35.  The family is not listed in the 1910
Census for MeenonTownship, so they must have started their trek to the State ofWashington. 
Whether Crawford, Washington was their originaldestination is not known but Laura and Robert are
buried near there.Information on this line came from C.J. Hoffstedt via email inDecember 2003 with

CENSUS:  1850 US Census for VT, Rutland Co., Ira.  Enumerated 20 Jul1850.  Stamped #5.

Charles F. Thornton, 19; laborer, VT; Abel P. Thornton, 17;laborer, VT.  both Charles and Abel
attended school within the year.(Actually Charles is Charlotte and Abel is Ashel.)

Where the Maranville family was in 1880 is so far unknown. On the 1900census, Robert Maranvill
[sic], 74, Wid, was enumerated with his son,Robert, and daughter-in-law, Nora, in Pendleton, Fall
Creek Township,Madison Co, IN [E.D. #91, Sheet 3A]. Charlotte Flora apparently didn'tknow she was
dead. In 1900, Flora Moranville [sic], 68, b. Jun 1831,was living in the household of her cousin,
Stukley Downs, in HamptonTown, Washington Co., NY [E.D. #131, Sheet 4A]. Although she claimedto be
married, something seems to have happened here.

CENSUS:  1880 US Census for NY, Washington Co., Hampton, E.D. #144, p.4D, Dwelling #38, Family

visited [or lived with] these folks, censuses would haveindicated that she died soon after 1870.
Of course, she wasn'tanybody's sister but Lucy's first cousin. One would think they'd haveknown
her first name.
