    Notes 
    • Lena was a professional piano player. She homesteaded in Kit Carson, CO and married W.W. Anderson, also a homesteader in Kit Carson, on July 7, 1913.

      Mrs. Laura Francis received a letter from Kit Carson, Colorado Wednesday afternoon announcing the marriage of Miss Lena Grouse, formerly of this city to Mr. W. W. Anderson of that place last Monday. The announcement came as a complete surprise to her many friends in and near this city. Miss Grouse is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Goodlow Grouse and a sister of Miss Gladys Grouse, a popular teacher in the local schools. Miss Grouse went to Colorado nearly three years ago where she settled on a claim near Kit Carson. She will prove up on her claim during the coming August. Mr. Anderson is known to several Chillicotheans who have visited in that country. He is a very prosperous young rancher owning one of the largest ranches in that section and a large stock raiser. They will reside on the Anderson ranch.
