The Stoddards

Grace mentions the Stoddards several times.  They come to visit her family, and she often visits them as well, sometimes spending the night.

There is more than one Stoddard residence in the area, but one Stoddard family that she definitely spends time with is Chester Harlow Stoddard and his wife and Ella E. Stoddard (nee Alger), who live in Corunna Ward 2 in 1910.  In 1908, Chester is 39 years old and Ella is 30.  The 1910 census shows they have a son Harlow, who would have been 6 years old in 1908.  In 1910, Ella reports that she had 2 other children who have died.  One of those is her daughter Helen Stoddard, who was age 1 in 1900.  Helen was Ella's first child, so another child was born and passed away between 1900 and 1910.

Chester died in 1937.  Ella is still living in Corunna at the time the 1940 census was taken.
