    it didn't say where Susan Lemmonier was buried.

    I called Vicki Woolridge with the Ida Grove Cemetery Records, phone
    712-364-3694.

    In H. R. Springer's lot 110, there is a "Mrs. Springer buried August
    30, 1916."
    With Susan Springer Lemmonier passing away on August 28, 1916, it does
    look like Susan Lemmonier is buried with
    her first husband, the Civil War Veteran. He died in 1885.
    In the same lot are buried Mrs. George Kephart and Henry Kephart.

    However, we don't think there is any gravestone there at the time, Lot

F, b. 31 August 1842, d. 28 August 1916
  • Religion*: Susan Ann Downey was Member of the Church of God.1
  • Num Child*: She had 5 one died in infancy children.2
  • Note*: Called Mam
    Was an invalid for 9 years
    Wasn't raised by her parents--didn't know who she belonged to

    FROM: Note from Pat. her father was Robert Downey, her second husband was
    Philip Lemmonier

    Possibly spelled DONEY

    FROM: Handwritten note from Coral Swartz.
    Harry Springer married Susan DOWD in Pennsylvania. They came to Iowa on an immigrant train when Emma was 6. Susan was a "bound" girl. She ran away at age of 14 or 15 and worked in a cigar factory. Susan did not know her parents. A bound girl is one that is taken in by some one and they must earn their keep (Maybe she ran away 'cuz of sexual harassment), Coral said.

    FROM: Handwritten note
    Sung by Ethel's grandma Lemonier, her mother's mother and Mrs. Swartz

    I don't want to play in your yard.
    Once there lived side by side two little maids, used to dress just alike; hair down in braids, blue gingham pinafores, stocking red, little bonnets tied on each pretty head. When school was over secrets they'd tell, whispering arm in arm down by the well. One day a quarrel arose; hot tears were shed, "You can't play in our yard" but the other said:
    (chorus) I don't want to play in your yard, I don't like you anymore. You'll be sorry when you see me sliding doen our cellar door. You can't holler down our rain barrell, you can't climb our apple tree. I don't want to play in your yard, if you won't be good to me.

    Next day two little maids each other mis, quarrels were soon made up, sealed with a kiss. Then hand in hand again, happy they go, friends all through life to be, they have each other so. School days soon pass away, sorrow and blis, but love remembers yet, quarrels and bliss. In sweet dreams of childhood we hear the cry; "You can't play in our yard" and the old reply (chorus)


    Sayings: What do we live for it it is not to make life less difficult to each other?

    Give to a gracious message a host of tonges; but let ill tidings tell themselves.

  • (with parents) Census: Female Sentence: She appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of Blaine, Ida County, IA in the household of her parents, Harry Robert Springer and Susan Ann Downey, age 5, birthplace PA.1
  • Marriage*: Agnes Springer married Freedus E Chapman on 14 January 1894 at Grand Meadow Twn, Cherokee County, IA, USA.2
  • Death*: Agnes Springer died on 19 January 1925 at Benoit Station, Polk County, MN, USA, at age 49; Chronic endocarditis.
  • ObituaryText: Agnes Springer was born August 11, 1875 near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Her father and mother, Henry and Susan Springer, farmed and raised their family of 4 children, Harry, Ella, Lizzie and Agnes. When Agnes was 4, she moved, by wagon train, with her family to ida County, Iowa. There the family farmed in Logan Township until the death of her father on, May 14, 1885. Sometime in the 1890's Agnes met Freedus Chapman who had
    recently moved to Ida County from Michigan with his widowed mother and family. The couple was married in 1894 and soon moved to South Dakota where they homesteaded. (Freedus' mother Celested lived with them at this time). After a year of hardship and drought, the family moved to the Windom area of southern Minnesota. There, Agnes' first daughter, Elsie, was born, December 5th, 1897. An early photograph of the family was taken at Windom in 1898 and shows Freedus, Agnes and Elsie at 1 year old. Agnes had bought one yard of red calico material and made the dress that Elsie had on. Agnes herself was wearing her gray color wedding dress.
    The family soon moved to Spencer Township in Aitkin County, Minnesota. The US Census of 1900 lists them living there along with Freedus' mother Celestia. That census indicates that they were farming and that the farm was mortgaged. Years later, a daughter remembered that Agnes had an eighth grade education and
    that she was good with math and figures. It was probably in Aitkin County that their second child, Eva Faye was born on June 21, 1900.
    From Aitkin County, the family moved to Amo, near Windom, where Freedus' mother Celestia died January 30, 1906. The family apparently moved again to Aitkin County before becoming discouraged by the wetness of their land and moving by railroad in march, 1909 to a farm in Kertsonville Township, Polk County,
    Minnesota. Here the 1910 US Census lists the family living with 7 children
    (Elsie 12, Eva 9, Erma 7, Myron 5, Milo 5, Muriel 3, and baby Oral ) Three
    more children were born after this census (DeWitt, loyd and Edna) but in 1914 all of the children got scarlet fever and Oral and Milo died. This was very
    hard on the entire family and Elsie never forgot the day one of her brothers died. "It was a cold winter day and the doctor came out to the house. He said to my father, "Chapman, you lost a son today and I would not be surprised if
    more of the children' don't die." Milo Freedus Chapman was only 9 years old (b10-8-04) when he died April 16 1914 while his brother Oral (b 4-15-10) had justturned 4 when he died 1 month later on May 12, 1914. There was no funeral forthe boys because the family was quarantined.Freedus and Agnes had finally found the land (Near Benoit Station in PolkCounty) that they could farm and raise their family on. Freedus became active in civic affairs and served on the school and township boards for 22 years. At
    the same time, Agnes served as secretary of the township and the bookkeeper.
    Her husband could be very stubborn and overbearing but Agnes was quite the
    opposite. She always kept her mouth shut even when Freedu was bound to have his
    own way.
    Agnes was remembered as a very sweet and very hard working lady. Her main job,
    of course, was raising the 10 children. For this, she did have the help of her
    oldest daughters and Elsie remembered that even though they had few, if any,
    toys, there were always brothers and sisters to take care of and play with.
    Agnes also did alot of canning of garden vegetables and meat. She was always
    fizing food and inviting people over (She liked to have alot of people around).
    The family never went hungry but it did get cold in the poorly insulated farm
    houses and some of the children remembering shivering in bed on a winters
    night. Even though the family never had a Christmas tree and couldn't afford
    much, Agnes always tried to make something for each child. At Christmas she did
    alot of sewing and made clothes for everyone.
    Agnes and Freedus did not have much of a church going background. When they
    lived at Amo, the family did go to the Methodist Church which was about a mile
    from the farm house. After they moved to the farm at Benoit, however, they
    never went to church, but did see to it that the children got to Sunday school
    occasionally when it was held at the school house.
    Agnes Springer Chapman died in her home at Benoit Station at 9:30 om January
    19, 1925. She had been seriously ill for more that two years with heart trouble
    and was only 49 years old. The cause of death was listed as chronic
    endocarditis on the death certificate. The funeral service was held at 2:00 pm
    Thursday January 22, 1925, at Stenshoels Undertaking Parlor. Reveran McCrea of
    the Crookston Methodist Church officiated.3
