I am a granddaughter of Melvern Dennis Looker, brother of Amelia, whom the family called "Millie". This is the information I have: Amelia Frances Looker was born July 21, 1879 at Ash Ridge in the Town of Bloom, Richland County, WI. She married Alfred Benton Carruthers, November 20, 1898. He was born April 3, 1869 and he died July 31, 1920. Their home was Ash Ridge where all their children were born and where Adeline died just before they moved to Clark County. Adeline was born June 12, 1903. Bent's health was very poor so they sold out and went to Clark Co. hoping his health would improve, but it didn't and he passed away that same summer.
Other children: Isolene Arminda, born June 5, 1899; James Lincoln, born July 16, 1900; Skyles Woodburn, born March 31, 1905; Beatrice Irene, born May 22, 1906; Thomas Claud; Alma Altine. I did not put dates in for the last two but I have the dates. Because they may still be alive I won't write them in this letter. There is a Looker reunion held each summer on a Saturday in July or August in Viola, WI. There are descendants of the Carruthers family who usually attend the reunion along with others Looker family descendants. If you wish to attend the reunion, let me know. It will be in mid August this year. If you are not in touch with the family members who attend the reunion, let me know and I will be able to help you contact them.
