Regular readers of Casefile Clues will remember Ira Sargent--my former brick wall ancestor.
While on my trip to Salt Lake's Family History Library, I decided to revisit his siblings and see if I could track them and see if it would provide any clues related to Ira and his parents, Clark and Mary (Dingman) Sargent.
I have made some progress on Ira's sister, Minerva (Sargent) Stroebel who died in Evanston, Cook County, Illinois, in 1943. Her death certificate is transcribed on FamilySearch, but I'm going to get a copy of the actual record while in Salt Lake.
Minerva has not been located in the 1940 census, but her one married daughter has. Stay tuned.
