I've run into a brick wall researching my grandmother, Amy(? )O'Donnell/ Dikes/Banks. She was married to a "O'Donnell in 1882 when my mother's half-brother, Charlie O'Donnell was born in Missouri. She was then married to a "Dikes" in 1889/1890 in Coffeeville, Ks.,when my mother's brother Artie Dikes was born. My mother Gertie Mae Dikes was born in Ar. in 1892.
I found these three children living with George Banks' family and listed as step-children in the 1900 census. I checked George Banks marriages and he married my grandmother (Amy Dikes) in 1896. George married again in 1898, so I guess my grandmother had passed away, although I can find no records.
Due to the problems with records that were burned in 1890 and not knowing my grandmother's maiden name, I would appreciate any information. Thanks, Harve
