I am researching my great-grandmother Myrtle Josephine Hanson Shaw born on 15 Dec, in between 1910-1912 (the year is in dispute and apparently, she had troubles with SSA later in life). She passed on 9 Sept, 1979 in Minneapolis, MN as a result of violence. Her husband, Albertus Eugene Shaw (married 31 Aug, 1929) had already passed.
Based upon early school records, it appears she lived in Glendorado, Benton County. Her fathers name was either Thomas, John or George, we are unsure which is correct. I assume she was born in the area, but do not know for sure.
I have a copy of death certificate, but do not have a birth certificate and think this may help confirm name of father and/or other information. We believe she was an only child, which seems to complicate things.
As note, early school record and death certificate have different father name. We do not know mother name either.
I’m not sure what else to do to track down some information to continue to research the line. Any suggestions would be most welcome!
