I am researching my family on my father's side. I never met my father, but I did meet his mother (my grandmother) once in 1977 and her name was MARY HAWKINS. We spent a nice afternoon talking about her side of the family. I have only been researching my family for only a month, and it has been really interesting and exciting.... but I am having trouble learning more about where my grandmother is buried and the family around her at that time (most of whom I know very little).
MARY'S maiden name was MARY ELIZABETH SPRAGUE. Born July 25, 1899 and died in September 1981. She lived most of her adult life in Marin City, California since at least World War 2 or so, but was born and raised in Coshocton, Ohio. She married David Anderson in Ohio but he died at age 26 in 1922. She remarried and I believe had 2 sons by a man named HAWKINS at some point. I don't know his first name. Her father was William Anson Sprague and her mothers maiden name was Julia Ann Ransopher.
I did meet her daughter (my aunt) Betty, and believe she was known on birth records as GEORGIA.
Can anyone look at Obituaries from September 1981 and find out the details of her death? Thanks SO MUCH!
