His father: George Edward Bounds, Sr., East St. Louis MO
Born, Feb 2 1898. Died, Nov 1977 Tampa FL
Wife Edna Elizabeth Wiber
His nickname is "Pucker." He worked at a newspaper in Hannibal in 1921-24. I suspect there is more family info on Bounds available at the Hannibal library. This newspaper (Hannibal Courier Post) is no longer published. He was the advertising manager for the St Louis Times in 1931-32.
Graduated from East St. Louis High School
Enlisted in Marines 1917. Gen LeJune signed his appointment to corporal.
He lived in University City MO in 1949.
He lived at 22 Ellisworth Lane, St. Louis MO 1950
Edna's father: Edward Reynolds Wiber, who was the official photographer for the St Louis Star for years. He is buried in Mount Hope Cemetary. Edward Wiber married Anna Kaercher March 25 1899 in Rolla MO (I have an original marriage document to verify this date and the spelling)
Edward was 61 at death.
Edward Reynolds Wiber's maternal grand mother's maiden name may be Maisel.
Edna's mother: Anna Elizabeth Kaercher Wiber
------Possible sister to Edna: Margaret Wiber
------Mrs. Jane Stephenson, both believed to be from St. Clair MO.
Also suspect that a lot of this family info may be in the Hannibal/St Louis newpapers at that time. Just have not been able to get up there for research.
I am George Bounds, Sr.' granddaughter.
Does anyone have a link to this? Debby
