:Can anybody recognise this family group?-

Thomas Husband (immigrated from England 1883-1890, entered US from Canada?) married Ivy Kathryn Hannan(Hannon?) in about 1890:
She was born in Ireland on 16 December 1869 of Irish Father and Spanish mother. She immigrated in 1889 (see 1900 census)
(ref 1900 census - "married 10 years")= 1890
(ref 1930 census - "age at first marriage was 30) = 1891.
The marriage probably took place in Ramsey County, Minnesota where, not only was there a Hannan family whose eldest child could have been Ivy Kathryn, but where Thomas obtained his Naturalisation papers:
I found this on Ancestry.com:-
Record/ Thomas Mellor Husband/ Ramsey/ 22 Jun 1998.
(I believe the above date to be a typo and it should read 22 Jun 1888).
The ref to Ramsey might be explained by the fact that the city of St. Paul's is in Ramsey County, Minnesota, where, in 1900 Census (6th June 1900), the following family appears:-

Patrick Hannan (Hannon?) 60 dob unknown day laborer (whole family born Ireland and immigrated 1885)
Mary Hannan.........................55 dob unknown
Anna Hannan daughter 30 March 1870 laundress
Patrick Hannan son 28 March 1872 laborer (R.R.)
James Hannan son 22 Nov 1877 laborer (R.R.)
Mary Hannan daughter 20 July 1879 laundress
Kate Hannan daughter 15 July 1884.

The Husbands' 1900 Census entry (Fargo City, Cass Co., N.Dakota) states also that Ivy Kathryn , Thomas' first wife has had 3 children by 1900 but only one survives. This will be Ivy Cecilia, the dead children being Cole b1893 and Percy b1895

Ivy Kathryn died 5 Feb 1895 after only 5 years marriage, death probably associated with Percy's birth

Widower Thomas Husband married Lucille Bates in about 1904; Young Ivy Cecilia did not marry until very late in her life, but became quite eminent in Education circles.
