184.108.40.206. Irene Muir (1909-1909)The only evidence I have that Irene Muir existed is Grandma Jennings' genealogy notebook. In it she recorded Irene's date of birth as 3 August 1909 and her death simply as 1909. She was the eldest child of Peter Semple Muir and Mayme Zebio. Peter and Mayme moved to Iowa soon after their marriage. Iowa had been recording death information in county coroner's reports since the 1850s. However, the collection of available reports is in no way complete. It is also possible Irene was born before the move to Iowa.
220.127.116.11. Ralph James Muir (1910-1910)Ralph James Muir was born in Iowa, likely Ottumwa where his parents were recorded in the 1910 census, to Peter Semple Muir and Mayme Zebio. He died on 11 Aug 1910 in Mystic, Iowa, where his parents moved and Peter Semple Muir's father lived with his second wife. Ralph's father worked as a coal miner at the time his death was recorded.
