We have a diary from 1912 of an Estelle Wentworth who was a singer and travelled throughout western Europe and the US. Please only serious responses

If you still have or know of the whereabouts of the diary of Estelle Wentworth, please let me know. I know of somebody in that family who would be keenly interested. I believe she may be the same as Estelle Wentworth who was born 25 March 1879 in Chicago, IL, daughter of George Orlando Wentworth and Estelle (Hurdle) Wentworth.

Thirteen years is a long time to respond to a post, but I would love to see Estelle Wentworth's diary. She and my grandmother were cousins. Both were direct descendants of Lawrence and Nancy Hurdle of Alexandria, VA. Estelle's grandfather Levi Hurdle and my grandmother's grandmother Serena Hurdle Monroe were siblings. Estelle visited her Alexandria relatives whenever she was performing in the Washington, and I have heard yhem speak of her often. Kitty Guy

Oh, I agree 13 years is a long time to reply to a post, but I only discovered my connection to Estelle Wentworth in the past few years. Estelle married my great-grandfather George Albert Parr and was his second wife. Like Estelle, he was a singer and an actor and toured with the Aborn Opera Company.

I would appreciate seeing her diary and learning more about her. If you've sent it off to someone else may I know who so I can contact them about it?

Hope to hear from you, Doug.

Cheers,
Wendy LeRoy-Colby

I am still hoping to see Estelle's diary. what a surprise to hear from a descendent of her husband. Did Estelle have any children? I know that there was a Parr daughter; was she a child by his first wife? Kitty Guy

Hi Kitty,

I don't think Estelle had any children. There was a Parr daughter. Her name was Thelma Irene Parr and she was my grandmother. She married my grandfather, LeVerne C Leroy in Ohio in 1916. They had three children, LeVerne Jr, Albert, and my father, Raymond.

I have been searching for information on Estelle and have found a little, some census entries and a number of arrivals and departures from the US to Bermuda for various performances. I have also found a number of newspaper articles describing Estelle's and Albert's appearances in the Washington DC area. They appeared a number of times at the National Theater.

Are you related to Estelle? If so, how?

This is a fun and interesting connection.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Cheers,
Wendy LeRoy-Colby
