Ida was a good cook! Loved that fried chicken with sesame. Cooked on an old wood-fir e stove. Pumped cold water from a well. Plucked chickens. Milk cows. She could whip cream by hand (no elec egg beater). SuJeanne Foster, fond memories .
Ida married Albert Clinton Smith, son of John H. Smith and Ella Laffer. (Albert Clinton Smith was born on 1 Jan 1906 in Keokuk County, Iowa and died on 30 Mar 1985 in Sigourney, Keokuk Co, Iowa.)
