Is there someone who could access an obit for this Eunice Maude Waite?I'm hoping to determine that she was the birth daughter of James F. Roop and Nellie E. McLaughlin.Nellie's mother, Adeline E. "Addie" Conover was married to Robert B. Conover.James and his father-in-law, Robert were murdered 12 March 1896 Mining camp, near the "Lost Horse" Mine, 90 miles east of Banning, California.They were shot by mining partners in a dispute.The information we Roop researchers have turned up shows that James was survived by a wife and 2 or 3 children.I believe that this Eunice Maude Waite was one of those children.She and her brother Allen B. Kearney (b- July 1893)were enumerated in 1900 with Nellie & her 2nd husband William Kearney, along with another brother (half-brother if I'm correct), Robert C. Kearney (b- April 1900).Eunice was incorrectly spelled as Unice R. Kearney but not only did the birth dates matched those from this Calif. Death Index, but Eunice's mother Nellie E. (McLaughlin) Kearney was enumerated in her daughter's household.Eunice was first married to Silas Jackson abt. 1913, who was 19 yrs. older than her.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.I've obtained the census information, now need the obits.
