I'm back at it again. Still trying to find whatever I can about Gladys. I read through this entire thread again and realize that I caused some confusion upfront and didn't answer your question. Although, ultimately I'm trying to track down info on Gladys, this initial post was to try and find an obit for Annie Y (Smith) Ellis. My mom was left with an "Aunt" Annie by her mom Gladys, and I want to confirm if this Annie would have still been alive up until 1952. I can't find her on the 1930 or 1940 census, and haven't had any luck locating a death record. I did make contact with Frank Jr and Caroline's grandson, but he hasn't been able to help confirm anything. Thanks again for everything you've located to this point.
