Biography of Fannie Wooster
Judging by census records, Fannie R. Wooster appears to have been born in either 1874 or 1875. She married Stephen Steinman in 1892, who appears to have been born in December 1870 in Iowa. The couple with their children spent several years in Texas before moving to Erie, Neosho County, Kansas by 1920.
