Notes for Grace WITHROW

The 1926 "History of William Withrow" by Nellie Stanton shows Grace Withrow had been educated at the State Normal school at Platteville, Wisconsin, and had been a school teacher in Grant County, Wisconsin. After her father, George Withrow, joined the gold rush to the Klondike region in Alaska in 1896, his wife and daughters, of whom the youngest was Mary Belle, aged twelve years, moved to Chicago, where the eldest taught in the Chicago public schools. The second, Grace, became secretary to the postmaster, and the two youngest engaged in art work. Bertha attained remarkable success as a portrait artist. Grace died in Phoenix, Arizona, 1903, and Bertha in San Antonio, Texas, 1907.
