  • Notes 
    • The 1900 census lists her father Frank, 38, her mother Katherine, 37, Iona, 8, born May 1892 in Iowa, and her brother Duane, 6, born Sep 1893 in Iowa. 1900 U.S. Census, 4th Ward, Cedar Rapids, Linn Cnty, IA (T 623, Roll 444, stamped p. 140).

      According to the 1920 census, Iona Lemon, 28, and her daughter Alyce Jane, 2 1/2, were living with her parents and brother. Iona's occupation is listed as a school teacher. 1920 U.S. Census, 14th Precinct, Cedar Rapids, Linn Cnty, IA (T 625, Roll 500, stamped p. 119).

      The 1925 Iowa State Census records the Lemon family residing in Davenport at 102 S. Thornwood Ave: Leslie C Lemon, Jr, 37 yrs old, living with his wife Gertrude, 32, and daughters "Alys J," 7, and "Lois C," 1. 1925 Iowa State Census, Ward 1, Davenport, Scott Cnty, IA (Roll: IA 1925_1932; lines 145-148).

      In 1931 Gertrude was living in Muscatine, IA. She provided relevant information for her father's death certificate (see his Notes).

      Regarding Iona's father's family (and others), Bertha Ina (Newens) Snouffer -- wife of Iona's first cousin William D. Snouffer -- wrote:
      "I have Frank Snouffer's children ... as Iona Gertrude & Duane Hayden.... We always called Iona "Ona".... She lived in St. Petersbug but does not answer my Christmas cards and they do not come back, so I don't know [anything else] about her. (Undated letter from Bertha Ina (Newens) Snouffer to her son Robert Snouffer, probably in the mid-1960s; punctuation added for clarity.)
