Found Safe

Louisville Courier-Journal, 23 July 1891

Now for the rest of the story on missing Mary Smith. She was found safe late in the day on 22 July 1891, across the river from Louisville in neighboring New Albany, Indiana by the local police. Mary was in a boarding house.

It looks like she married someone named Baldwin before 1920. In the 1920 US Census she was living with her mother Delana Richardson Smith in Louisville, working as a seamstress in a tailor shop. By the 1940 US Census, she was working as a seamstress in a mens' clothing factory in Louisville.

Mary L. Smith Baldwin passed away on 14 July 1947 in Louisville at the age of 73.
