Hi Shelley,

Check
http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/l/a/g/Nancy-M-Lagacesmith/WEBSITE-0001/UHP-0092.html
for Lena's family tree and history. She seemed to have no children and her
one brother died in 1918.

Go to the home page and there is a Nancy M Lagace-Smith who is responsible
for the tree. Contact her.
