I recently found some information on Edward Calkins who was Maude's second husband. The information matches everything I have on him. Birthdate 1890, occupation machinist, children Ted, Jackie and Jimmie and birthplace Illinios. The problem is his wife is listed as Bessie NOT Maude. I met Ed when I was a teenager and recall him having a sense of humor and I can see him listing Maude as Bessie.
I cannot find anything that links him to a wife named Bessie. The picture we attached to an earlier email is Ed, Maude, Jackie and Jimmie.
The Ted Martin my parent's talked about may actually be Ted Calkins I have no pictures with Ted in them. It seems the more information we find the more confusing it becomes.
I would love to hear from you when get some time. Again, my home phone number is 920-468-8138 and I would be happy to accept the charges.
Thanks much and hope all is well with you!
