I am looking for information on a Mertha Lyons who was the last child born to Augustus Lyons and Sarah Jane McCullough who first married William Dowies then Valentine Simmons and finally Augustus.
Mertha, Sarah and Augustus are listed on the 1900 census as living in Oberlin. The trail stops cold at that point.
Sarah had her first child in 1858 and Mertha in 1891, so that's quite a span! Augustus died in 1902 and Sarah seems to have lived in relatives after that, so I am wondering if some other family member took Mertha in or what happened?
Thanks for any help.
