  • Notes 
    • The 1900 census lists Mary, born in Ohio in Oct 1876 [sic: 1868], living with her husband of 11 yrs, Charles, and their children Walter, Mabel, Leroy, Howard and Ray. The census reports that she had borne 5 children, all still living. 1900 U.S. Census, Perry twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 623, Roll 1270, stamped p. 191).

      The 1910 census lists Mary as a 41 year old widow living in Boyne, Michigan, with 8 children: Walter A, 20; Mabel E, 18; Leroy, 16; Howard, 13; Arthur, 10; Addie N, 7; Ruby, 5; and "Claudie C," 9/12. The family apparently had moved from Ohio to Michigan around 1903, because the 3 youngest children were all born in that state. 1910 U.S. Census, 4th Ward, Boyne, Charlevoix Cnty, MI (T 624, Roll 640, stamped p. 316).

      In 1920 the census reveals that Mary had remarried, perhaps about 1915. Her second husband was Beverly Gillstrap, born abt 1879 in Kentucky. Living with them were 4 of her children: Walter, 29, born in Ohio, employed as a "Prop[rieter], Pool Room"; Arthur, 19, b. in Michigan, an "electric welder Ry Shop"; Ruby, 14, b. in Michigan; and Claudia, 10, b. in Ohio. Beverly was employed as a "bartender" of "retail soft drinks." 1920 U.S. Census, Ward 7, Columbus, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 625, Roll 31109, stamped p. 176).
