Gertrude C. Bly, was born Edina, Knox County, MO. about 1869 (1870, 1880 censuses), daughter of David Bly. When David was admitted to the Leavenworth Soldiers Home, Leavenworth, KS in August 1892, his contact relative was listed as Mrs. Gertrude Fant, Saint Louis, MO, "daughter." I have found good information on all the other children of David Bly, but have been unable to find anything further on Gertrude: no marriage record, no 1900 census record, no death or grave record. There must be some Missouri records that are not online that would could contain something about this lady. Any suggestions on where else to look?
