Ernest and Margaret Misfeldt’s second daughter, Elizabeth Misfeldt, was born in June of 1889. She met and later married Richard Strait in 1908. According to the 1910 census, Richard and Elizabeth Misfeldt Strait lived with his parents, William and Malorina Strait, on a farm in the township of Arthur in Chippewa County. Richard had a sister, Kate Strait, who was two years younger.
The Strait’s had two daughters, Evelyn Strait, who was born in 1909, but we have few details on her sister. The girls went to live with Ernest and Margaret, their grandparents, in Bloomer, Wisconsin, when Elizabeth passed away in 1921, at the age of 32. She had been a housekeeper and the obituary reported she had been ill. It also reported her age as being approximately 35. Richard had preceded her in death.
