My great grandmother, Bessie Fruin, was born in England on 15-JUN-1861 to Mr. and Mrs. John Fruin. Family stories say her parents were from County Tipperary, Ireland. The John Fruin family came to America about 1864 and settled in Keokuk, Lee Co., Iowa. Bessie had 3 sisters: Nellie Fruin Bregenzer, Mary Fruin O'Shea, and Mrs. J.T. Fitzgerald (of Los Angeles-CA) and brothers; but I don't know their names. In 1885, Bessie married Charles Theodore Samuels and they raised a family of 7 children in the Keokuk-IA area. Bessie died on 17-JAN-1920 in Keokuk. Do these names sound familiar to anyone? Any help is appreciated!
