Vina's sister Amanda also ended up in St. Paul. She married Milton W. Taylor born 1854 in Wisconsin, in late 1888 or 89. She maybe had married for the first time in 1878, but at this time I don't know to whom or where. Milton may have children from his first marriage but they had no children together. He also worked for the railroad as a car repainter. They lived at #925 Fremont St., St. Paul. They witnessed the marriage of George Smith and Vina Pulsifer on April 17th, 1888, at the Ramsey County Courthouse in St. Paul, Minnesota. Lorraine talked many times of visisting Aunt and Uncle Taylor, because they lived close to the Smith home on 3rd Street. When she and her brother Bob were all dressed up for their 1st Communion they were taken to see Aunt and Uncle Taylor. Uncle Taylor answered the door and wanted to know who the bride and groom were, a happy memory for a little girl.
