Individual Note

Florence's brother, James Ancil, signed for her when she got married as she was only 16.

Her middle name was known as Alpha by her great granddaughter, Janice Orth. Lucille's family have it hand written as Alverette. Janice had not heard that the relatives in Iowa called Florence "Pink".

Janice has a writing that gives Florence's birth year as 1871. Lucille Webster's records show her as born in 1870: The family Bible is hard to read but looks like 1870. Her marriage license records her as 16 in March. She would be born in 1870 to be 17 in December of 1887. The 1880 census shows her as nine but was written in the summer of 1880 and Florence would have been 10 in December 1880.

Jacob Creager had no children of his own or they died young, so on Nov. 17, 1887, his heirs were from his sister's, Lydia Miers, children. Those heirs are all grand-nephews and nieces of Jacob: (reference 2):
10. Florence A. Johnson, age 17.
