  • Notes 
    • All documents listing Susan's date of birth consistently state the event to be May 15, 1885. The extracted copy of her birth certificate received from the Sherburne county recorder, however, gives the date of May 14 for her birth. Also interesting is that a second record of her birth was found at Mille Lacs county courthouse, indicating her place of birth as Princeton. Since her daughter Goldie was told that Susan was born at Santiago, this record will reflect birth in Sherburne Co, MN.

      Susan "Susie" Stanwood was very devoted to her family. She was once given a marriage proposal by a missionary, and although she was interested, she declined, not wanting to leave her family. She married Ed Clark at the age of 20, and the couple had one child, Beatrice Marie Clark. The marriage was short-lived however, due to Ed's reported "skirt chasing". Susan and daughter Beatrice lived with Susan's parents Albert and Lavina in Floodwood, MN, until 1913 or 1914, at which time the entire Stanwood family moved to Minneapolis, where Susan resided when she met her second husband, Ernest "Bob" Simpson at a funeral (presumably that of her aunt Flora's husband, Oliver Fred Simpson, who was also Ernest's brother).

      After their marriage, the couple lived briefly in Rock Rapids, Iowa, and later moved to Owatonna, Steele Co, MN, where they owned a farm. It was here that their daughter Goldie was born in 1921. in 1924 to 1925, the couple sold their farm and part of the profits were invested in a new Ford Model-T, which the family used to travel. Goldie remembers visiting Ernest's brother in South Dakota as a young child. The family moved back to Minneapolis where they lived when Ernest was diagnosed with prostate cancer in the late 1930's. During his illness, Susan assumed the role of bread winner, working at such places as the local library and the Goodyear tire company.

      After Susan's daughter Goldie married and moved to California, Susan often traveled back and forth between Los Angeles and Austin, MN, where her oldest daughter Beatrice resided. Goldie's daughter, Patricia, fondly remembers her grandmother, although Susan died when "Patti" was only four years old. Susan died exactly one year before the birth of Goldie's second daughter, Suzanne, who was named after her grandmother.
