Mary B. Tweed cash-claimed, also in 1914,  land in 1S 48W a mile south of Myrtle's

  "Miss May Tweed is enjoying a visit from her two sisters, who arrived last week. "

Mary B. and Lois E. were daughters of Robert and Fannie Eliza (Bell) Tweed, in Nebraska.  Fannie died in 1894, and Robert and Sarah R. (Hunter) Tweed had Pansy Lucile in 1897 and Mildred Anita in 1900. 

Alma Whiting married a Lloyd Hunter, so they may have been related.
