Katie May “Kate” Braden was born in 1872 in Kentucky. She was the daughter of Andrew Jackson Braden and Feriba Jane (Campbell) Braden. She came to Missouri with her parents in 1880-1890.
About 1898 she was married to a Mr. Stelplugh (?sp), they had one daughter Genene. Kate’s first husband died prior to 1900. In the 1900 Census of Green Township (Utica), Livingston Co., Missouri, Kate Stelplugh was living with her parents and her sister Minnie Braden. Kate was born in March 1873, in Kentucky, she was a widow, and had one child, Genene Stelplugh, and Kate was employed as a school teacher.
She was married to John W. Cramer about 1904. It appears that John W. Cramer had been married before and had a son Herbert Cramer, who was 16 and living with them in 1910 Green Township, Livingston Co., Mo. In 1910, John W. and Kate Cramer were parents of two children, Frank Cramer age 5, and Grace Cramer age two years, and Kate’s daughter Genene Stelplugh who was ten years of age, was also living with them.
In 1920, also in Green Township, Livingston Co., Missouri, John was farming and owned his farm, was age 60, born in Illinois. With him was his wife Kate, age 46, born in Kentucky, and three children: Frank who was 14, Grace, age 12, and John Jr. age 7. Also with was Genene Stelplugh, Kate’s daughter by her first marriage, Genene was 20 and teaching school.
Kate’s husband, John W. Cramer, died May 29, 1943.
Kate May (Braden) Cramer died in 1949, in Livingston Co., Missouri. Survivors included her sister Minnie Braden Stillwell of Braymer, Caldwell Co., Missouri. And I believe all Kate’s four children also were living.
Burial was in Utica Cemetery, in Utica, Livingston Co., Missouri, beside her husband John W. Cramer.
