0498. Blanche Meader (1875 - p.1945)
Blanche Meader, daughter of Charles Carroll Meader (1843-1930) [0393] and Susanna Harper (1843-1894), was born at Greene, IA September 4, 1875 and was living in 1945.
She is listed in the 1880 and 1885 Censuses. On January 5, 1896 she married John A. Smith. We do know that the first child, Lucille, was born September 29, 1897. There is a picture in the possession of Victor Meader [0500] that shows Lucille, the child, 2 years old. The picture was taken and dated Chicago, 1899. The family was then living in Joliet, IL. We do not know when the second child was born or where or when either died. But it is a consensus that neither was married and so both died without descendants. Blanche Smith was living in Los Angeles in 1945, and it is known that she lived quite some time in California.
The children of Blanche Meader and John Smith were:

i. Lucille Smith, born September 29, 1897, probably in Joliet, IL.
ii. John A. Smith, probably born after 1899.
