Interesting ... I have my grandma's pictures temporarily. I am sure that there must be a couple of Edna Ruth Allender. (I am still trying to decipher some of them because they have two sets of notes on many of them.) Edna Ruth Allender appears to have been raised by the Lafuze [Lafuse/La Fuse] family in Liberty, Indiana. Interestingly enough, it appears that the Kitchell's lived near a Lafuse family as well. My theory is that maybe Edna's mother died - I found a John Allender in the 1880 census working as a laborer and listed as "widower." I'll try to get a picture of Edna Ruth Allender scanned and uploaded next week.
