Leata Powers, 83, of 820 Helen way, died at Yolo General hospital at 6 pm yesterday. She had been a patient at the hospital since December 29.

Mrs. Powers was a sister of Mrs. Mae Ryan of Winters. Funeral arrangements are pending at the McNary funeral home.

1880 census born in Iowa
1885 living with parents in Iowa
1900 living in Benton Co, Iowa
1905 census living in Cass Co, Minnesota
1910 living in Backus, Cass Co, Minnesota
1930 census Winters, Yolo Co, California still under the name of Vankirk

Many of the later census records put her birth as Wisconsin but I never knew her famliy to have traveled there. I find it more probable that she was born in Vinton, Benton Co where her parents were married and traveled to Linn Co where the rest of her siblings were born.
