married in abt 1921 they had Elmer J. Fentiman (born 1922)

John remarried to Hazel W. Gardner.

Looking for information on Merle and her parents. I was told she died when Elmer was about 2 yrs old, but I have no way of confirming this.

Thank you in advance.

Oh wow, thank you soooo much!

As for the marriage bet John and Hazel, it was held on 1924 and they had two children together: Doris and Gordon. Hazel lived until she was 103 (died in 2011).

This marriage was supposed to happen after Merle's death (when Elmer was about 2).

By any chance do you know when Pearl/Merle was born?

And one last question (thank you so much by the way for the enormous help you have given me, much appreciated).

The newspaper quote says Mrs. Stewart was a niece, which Mrs Stewart they were referring about and who was she niece of? if you can read the rest of the quote would be wonderful to know, because, despite the fact I've tried looking everywhere I haven't had the luck to find these two passages.

Thank you once again!

That was the whole article, which perplexed me too. Did they mean Merle/pearls Mother, or was Pearl previously married?

that has crossed my mind as well...

Thank you so much once again for your help!

One more question, if you don't mind. Would you be so kind to make a screenshot of the article and share it with me?, If you can't I'll understand.
