Hi Mallory,

Have you tried searching the digital archives of the Elkader library. There is a discussion of how to search it on this query board, look for the query titled "Historic Clayton County Newspapers" a couple of queries below where your query is on this board.

I looked for Lena/Helena Geno in the Elkader Register during 1920 and found:

Elkader Register, Thur., 4 Mar. 1920, in the Strawberry Point Column.

The remains of Mrs. Al Geno, formerly of this place but for the past few years of St. Olaf, were brought here Tuesday afternoon for Burial.


Elkader Register, Thur., 20 May 1920, under court proceedings - probate of wills.

Lena C. M. Geno, estate. Alfred J. Geno appointed executor without bond.


I also found two news blurbs mentioning Alfred Geno in the Arlington News, Arlington, Iowa, which had a Strawberry Point column.

Arlington News, Thur., 23 Nov. 1916.

Alfred Geno has purchased a restaurant at St. Olaf. He will move his family there soon.


Arlington News, Thur., 4 Oct. 1917.

Mr. Alfred Geno, of St. Olaf, and son Albert were business visitors here Monday.


You will have to play around with the search engine on the Elkader Library site, its a little tricky. The Elkader Register's circulation encompassed both Strawberry Point and St. Olaf. It was probably the counties "official" newspaper.

For an obit for Helena/Lena Geno you could try the Strawberry Point library, I think they have a genealogy section with many obits.

Good Luck !
