John Frederick Milne (1875 - 1948) and Marguerite Boyd (1901 - 1970)

John Frederick Milne was born 24 Feb 1875, the fraternal twin of George Herman Milne.  He was the son of Andrew Milne and Jane Stringer.  He first married Carrie [Booth?] (abt. 1885, Illinois, USA - ?) between 1910 and 1915, probably in Benton County, Iowa, USA.  They are shown in the 1915 Iowas census together.  His 1920 census indicates a Divorced marriage status, but she seems to be nowhere in the census (at least as Milne).  He died 22 Nov 1948 in Benton County, Iowa, USA.

Marguerite Boyd was born 25 Jan 1901 in Benton County, Iowa, USA.  She was the daughter of George L. Boyd and Hester A. Rampton.  She died April 1970 in Dysart, Tama County, Iowa, USA.

They were married about 1925 in Benton County, Iowa, USA.  They had two children, whose names are the same as John and his twin George:

    George Herman Milne (18 Jun 1926, Iowa, USA - Jan 1981, Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri, USA)
    John Frederick Milne
(10 Dec 1930, Iowa, USA - 30 Jun 2007, Waterloo, Black Hawk, Iowa, USA)
