Family Friday: Webb/Siemsen

One of my maternal grandmother's five sisters, Mildred was born in Knox County, Nebraska,* just before Christmas, 1900.

According to Webb family records, Mildred married Louis Otto Siemsen (1897-1975) on September 21, 1921, in the village of Center, Nebraska.

Through census records and their five children's birthplaces we can follow the family's moves from Nebraska to Wyoming, back to Nebraska, then on to Kansas City, Kansas, before finally settling in Texas by 1934 where Mildred and Louis resided for the rest of their lives.

*As were all of her siblings except for the oldest brother Herbert who was born in Jones County, Iowa.
