Second wife

Judging by the clothing which is late 1880-1900's and the age of John appears to be, I would guess that this is Sara in the photo. Do you have any information about Myrtle Edna (John & Jane Matilda's daughter)Splane's daughter, Anna May? Searching to locate information concerning a child she might have, Viola May Collyar who was born May 31, 1931. Thanks for any help you might be able to give.

In 2009, you submitted that you had information. Are you related to this family originally from Western Canada that moved to Kansas?


The Splane's in my family were orginally from Canada. John lived in Kansas. What were your Splane names and where were they from?
