Hi again, I think I found Ethel's parents & siblings in the census records, and the marriage record for Ethel & George, and the marriage for Ethel's parents, but neither record has their parents listed.

But from what I found, it looks like Ethel's parents were Fielding Watson Jones and Julia Elma Doudnia.

It might be a good idea to find the marriage record for Ethel and her 2nd husband Charley Swanson.

Note...in one census, Ethel is listed as Viola, which is different from Vera from her headstone, but.....and her age is off from census records and date on headstone & the SSDI.
And her age on the marriage record shows different than the census and headstone, but maybe she wanted them to think she was older than she was?

Well, you decide if this may be Ethel & her family...

This seems to be the same mother & children that was in the Minnesota census. Notice that they are living in Burnett County also. The census states that they are all white, but most likely a mistake.
