Susan Walton's daughter, Grace Walton Crain. Part 10.

Grace Walton Crain
b. 1824, Mexico, Oxford, Maine
p. Samuel Walton and Susan Walton
m. Mr. Crain
Children: Joseph Crain (1845- ), Francis Crain (1847- )
d. 1874

Gratie [Grace] Walton (33) was listed living with her mother, Susan [Walton] Houghton, in the 1856 Pleasant Ridge, Lee County, Iowa census. A five year old male child, F. M. Crane, born in Iowa, was a part of the household also.

In 1870, prior to the Fraziers and Waltons departing for Utah, Gracie was living with her sister Elizabeth Walton Frazier and her family in Lawrence, Douglas, Kansas. She appears to have a different last name [Leivie] on the census inserted below.

County of Douglas, Kansas

Grace Walton Crain Leivie [1824-1874 ]

It was disappointing not finding any further information about Gracie. Perhaps I will eventually.
