This week's blocks were much easier to do then last week's and we're still not off the hook...there are more "Y" seams to come in the near future....H.
.Letter of the Week #9--Dwight M. Snow; Golden Valley County, North
Block association ... Betty's Delight
Dwight M. Snow was born on January 29, 1902 in Minnesota. In the first census that he is listed (1910) he and his father, Francis (b. 1878) and his mother, Fawn (b. 1877) are living in Golden Valley County, North Dakota. In the 1920 census when Dwight is 18 years old, only he and his father are listed. It is unknown if mother Fawn, died or left the family. By the 1930 census, Dwight is listed along with his wife Engelina Snow who was born on May 17, 1903. We also find that Dwight and Engelina are the parents of a six month old baby girl, Mary. Dwight died rather young, on January 15, 1968, just a few weeks shy of his 66th birthday. He never did leave Golden Valley. His wife Angeline lived to be 97 ½ years old and passed away on Christmas Eve 2000 in Bowman, North Dakota. Since daughter Mary was born in 1929, it is quite likely that she is still living. The problem is that it is hard to find daughters since they usually marry and change their names. I am hoping that Dwight and Engelina had a son and I can locate him next year when the 1940 census is released.
