Hi,

Looking for more information on Mattie and Fred. Can you help? They married into the LADD family.

I am tracing the Ezekiel Ladd-Catherine Lester family branch of Mordecai Lester-Delany Tripp ancestors and have been looking at the VAN WERT family (including their migration to Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and California).

Do you know where Lee Robert Van Wert died? I have him buried in Morningside Cemetery-Section K in Malone, Franklin, New York, USA. Also the same for Vivian (Frank) Van Wert.

Thank you,

Individual Report for Ethelvn Van Wert

Craig,

This is what I have for Ethelvn Van Wert................

Last night, I located a newspaper article for the marriage of James Costello and Ethelvn/Ethelyn Van Wert that cross-index to a record located on the BYU and the LDS sites. Also found (!!!) on the ancestry message board the obituary to Erma Costello that does cross-index with else has been found online. It stated that her mother was buried in Coeur d'Alene, Kootenai, Idaho, USA but have found no record as of yet.

The WAGGONER-James G Waggoner-1920 US does show her 2nd husband, a son (James G) and Erma Costello all in Idaho in 1920. I "think James senior died in 1921 but need further "proof". James junior appears to have been married several times but again, further "proof" is needed.

I've been researching James G. Waggoner and his family. Trying to obtain information from Idaho has been a challenge. I'd love to see the obituary for Ethelyn Van Wert Barrett and information on her marriage to Clare Barrett. If you're willing to send them, I'd like to have sources 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 10, especially 1, 4, 6. Or find out how to get them. Contact me through my Ancestry profile.

As for proof of James Gordon Waggoner's death in 1921, here's a link to his memorial on findagrave.com: http://tinyurl.com/l99cedq with a photo of his tombstone. I'm in the process of trying to obtain his obituary or anything on his death.

As for James G. Waggoner, Jr.'s several marriages, I've found some divorce notices in Seattle newspapers on GenealogyBank. Whether they are for the same James Waggoner is yet to be proven.

Hi,

This is where I located the information that I source. I just checked the links and they do work. The Us Census are available on Ancestry.com.

1 BARRETT-Ethelvn Van Wert Barrett-Obituary. - http://news.nnyln.net/franklin-county/search.html (search for "DUANE NATIVE DIES IN WEST" published in the Malone Farmer on October 14th, 1931) It is also attached.
2 VANWERT-Fred Van Wert-1900 US. - 1900 United States Census
3 COSTELLO-Erma Costello-Death-ID. - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FLRB-18M
4 BARRETT-Clare B Barrett-Ethelyn M Waggoner-Marriage-ID. - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/F3Y8-R98
5 WAGGONER-James G Waggoner-Etheline Costello-Marriage-ID. - http://abish.byui.edu/specialCollections/westernstates/weste...
6 BARRETT-Ethel Barrett-Death-ID. - http://abish.byui.edu/specialCollections/famhist/Death/detai...
7 COSTELLO-William J Costello-1910 US. - 1910 United States Census
8 COSTELLO-William J Costello-Ethelyn B Vanwert-Marriage-ID. (I think this one is also from familysearch, too.)
9 COSTELLO-Earle Costelloe-Birth-ID. - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FWCF-661
10 COSTELLO-Vanwert J Costello-Death-CA. - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/VPWB-KN2

I believe I found most of the marriages at http://www.digitalarchives.wa.gov/ for James G Waggoner (actual copies of the records for marraiges in Washington State.) and the divorces were through a RAOGK contact that did look ups in the Seattle newspapers.
