It is late here, I need to stop soon.

Have you found (maybe I did and I forgot) the children in 1895?

Ok, I made my phone call this morning to Moms and ordered the marriage certificate for Hiram Harwood, oldest son of John Wesley in 1889. I asked about many things but for divorces I have to call Court Administratorís office and for adoptions I have to call the Department of Health, State of Minnesota time and for deaths, I have to order on the Redwood county website.
From Lisaís searching last night, it seems certain that most of the Harwood children went to Montana in the late 1800s, except for Hiram who reportedly died in Minnesota in 1893 and Albert W. who married in Minnesota in 1895 to Tina Hansen and to Sarah Waters in 1905. After the 1905 marriage, Albert moved to North Dakota and we lose track of him after the 1910 census.
I canít find the family in 1895 or in 1900.

Today, I heard from the  Court Administrator's Office in Redwood. John Wesley Harwood divorced Eveline in July 1889 , getting custody of the children, and then Laura A. nee Partlow divorced John in 1892. I am thinking that she got the land for some reason as the Aug 1893 article which talks about John W. Harwood's disappearance says that he had lost his farm and was in financial distress. By the way, the court summons on the same page in 1893 for John Harwood is not for John W. There is another John Harwood there at the time whose children lived in Illinois, and although John died in Illinois in 1903, his will was probated in Minnesota. I did wonder about that.
Of course, I have searched endlessly for the deaths of John W. and Eveline. I am of the opinion that John probably went to Montana as most of his children seemed to do so. Some online trees have John W. dying in 1963 which I find hard to believe, no place given. Some say 1936 in Iowa but that is a different John W. Harwood as he had different children.  Today, I found a tree that says abt 1936 in Tooele, Utah and I am wondering if it should be Tooele, Montana as there is one in each state. Besides that, son Guy died in Tooele, Montana. Guy was in Kevin, Montana in 1949. So if anyone finds John W.'s death in Tooele, I would be delighted.
BTW, John W.'s son Hiram did not die in 1893 as reported, since his wife Sarah divorced him in 1899.

John Wesley Harwood's grandson also named John Wesley Harwood died in 1965 in Great Falls, Montana so possibly the online trees that have John Wesley Harwood's death as 1963 at age 119 are getting confused with Grandpa and grandson.

I think George Cook and Evaline Dodge, formerly Harwood, were possibly divorced by 1900, as there is a George Cook marrying Firzah/Tirzah/Theresa Arrwood on Feb 18, 1900 and they are on the 1900 census with daughters Maud and Alta who are too old to belong to Tirzah. Census says they are married 5 years but the marriage record says different. I think the children must belong to Evaline.
George and Tirzah are living separately in 1905. George dies July 29, 1908 in Brainerd, Crow Wing Co., Minnesota. Could anyone find his obit?

1905 census  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SPQX-DK1

Maud May Cook married Lafayette Hanson and died July 31, 1971 in Oregon.

1893 seems to be a year for disappearing Harwoods. There is a newspaper article in the Redwood Gazette Aug 17, 1893 that a John W. Harwood had disappeared 3 weeks previously. Also when Sarah Harwood nee Blake files for divorce in Sept 1898, final July 17, 1899, she states that her husband Hiram Harwood (son of John W. Harwood and Evaline Dodge) had wilfully deserted the family July 26, 1893. Do father and son disappear together?
Now I have found that Evaline Dodge remarried to George Cook July 31, 1891 in Morrison Co. It looks like they had 2 daughters Maude May June 1890 and Alta Edna Frances either Aug 10, 1892 or Aug 10, 1893. A family note online say that Evaline disappeared with Alta and Maude did not see Alta again. If this is true, did they disappear in Aug 1893 or after the 1900 census when George, his new wife Tirzah nee Castle, Maude and Alta are together. From several articles on the Minnesota Digital Newspaper Hub, in 1900 and 1901, Laverna Arrwood (Tirzah's daughter from her previous marriage) and Maudie Cook had perfect attendance several different months at the Lincoln school. There is no mention of Alta. Either she did not have perfect attendance, or did not go to school, or moved, disappeared, or died. An online tree says Alta died in 1900 which would fit the scenario, so I have ordered a death certificate for a possible death in 1900. Have also ordered a death certificate for Evaline in 1898 which also might fit if she took Alta earlier and then the child was returned before 1900.
In 1895, George is on the census with his daughter Maud. No Alta. Can't find her or Evaline in 1895. then he is with Tirzah in 1900, and then in 1905, he is alone again with Maud. In 1908, George dies July 29, 1908 in Nokay Lake Township, Crow Wing Co., Minnesota. If he had an obit, perhaps it would mention Alta.

Yesterday, I found an interesting article in the Redwood Gazette. It was Oct 26, 1939 but was looking back 50 years. Said that J.W. Harwood and Mrs. Laura Strawsell pled guilty to intent to commit matrimony. What on earth is that? Said the court imposed a light fine and they were dismissed with the usual formalities. John and Laura were married Oct 28, 1889.
There was another article May 28,1891 in the Redwood Gazette which said that J W. Harwood sold his land to a Mr. Partlow from Flandreau, South Dakota. Mr Partlow is here with his family and has taken possession of the place. So John did not lose the land in the divorce. John's second wife was Laura Agnes Strawsell nee Partlow. Wonder exactly who was the buyer?
