Frances Lillian Maude Sturdevant was born in a rock house that was built by her father on the prairie in Osborne County, Kansas, which is still standing today. After John and Frances divorced, Frances took care of her children until all were on their own with the exception of her youngest daughter. She then married Arthur C. Page in Illinois and settled there. He died of inoperable cancer.
Frances then married Arthur’s brother, Artie Lee Page. He was a widower with two children still to raise, and she still had the one daughter at home. They helped each other with their families, moving to Beech Grove, Marion County, Indiana, where they lived until they were divorced in the 1950’s. Frances then moved to California, where she died.
