Note: lived at Craigmont, ID. Notes for HELEN IVELL SMITH: She is buried at Bougainvillea Cemetery in Avon Park, Highlands County, Florida, next to her husband and his parents. She grew up in northern Idaho. She remembered seeing Indians in her yard. They spent the night in her front yard once when her father was away. In winter, the snow would get so deep they had to dig tunnels to the barn to care for the animals. Her mother was very particular about what Helen was allowed to eat. Once, she caught Helen behind the door chewing on her father's cow boots! At the age of 16, Helen was in a severe accident in which her right foot was nearly cut off. She was told she would never walk again, but she did! She also played the piano. Since high heels were stylish at the time, her ligaments grew back shortened and she had to wear heels the rest of her life. Clara remembers her doing splits as long as she lived. Because of Helen's father's declining health, the family started spending winters in Florida. There she met and married Clare. She had two counsins that visitied for Harriet's graduation: Myrtle Peck Beers and Mable Peck from Beaver Crossing, Nebraska. We believe they were older than Helen.
