Born in Torrington, Wyoming in 1910, Lena Speese was the second child and oldest daughter of Rose Meehan and Charles Speese. By age five, the Speese family relocated to Cherry County, Nebraska homeland of Lena's Meehan grandparents. Ten years later the Speese family moved on to Sully, South Dakota where Lena met and married George Day in Okobojo, SD. The Day family eventually settled in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Katannah Day was the only daughter of George and Lena Speese Day. She was a commercial/graphics artist with a passion for family history. The second video features her rendition of a photograph of Hester Freeman Meehan seated in front of her sod house.
