From manuscript sent from Marie Fox to Charles W. Northup:
Since her doctors advised against her living in Nebraska, the family was reunited in the fall of 1900 in Shenandoah, Iowa, where they lived until about 1903. His wife took Mary, the youngest child, and spent about a year in Hot Springs, Arkansas. In the meantime, he took the rest of the family and returned to Orleans, Nebraska, where he built a home. His wife returned to him there in May, much improved in health. They lived there for four years, her health failed again, and his wife went with a friend to California to be with her sister for several months. In 1910 he sent his wife and two youngest daughters to Colorado Springs, Colorado for a year. Then they moved to Lincoln, Nebraska, remaining in Nebraska till the fall of 1917, when they moved to Marion, Kansas. They lived in Kansas until his wife's death, July 1, 1920. (She died at Lincoln Nebraska, where she is buried. After that time he made his home with relatives and friends.

William S. Easterling was my grandfather. I see that you list he and Rachel's children, Anna Jane (who passed away) and the other children are listed as living. Dorotha (Easterling Crutcher)(my mother) passed away on 12/11/1977. As far as I know, Wilma and Bill are still alive. Thanks! Caprice Crutcher

He was my grandfather. My mother was Dorotha Anise Easterling (Crutcher). Grandpa was born in Oklahoma in an old sod dwelling outside of Enid. When he was five, they moved to the homestead house, which in the late 70's was still standing, although vacant. Grandpa was an incredibly kind man and very intelligent. He was the best Scrabble player I have ever met! :)
