Timeline & Unsolved Mysteries:
On the 1900 census for Luther Township, Octavia Tusant was listed as the Head of Household, widowed, and mother of 5 with 4 children still living. She worked as a clerk in a Dry Goods store and owned her home free of mortgage (from context, most likely in the original town site of Luther). This family remains somewhat of a mystery, as only two of her children are accounted for. What were the names of the others? Were any living in the area?
