The possibility exists that he had children, but he never mentioned them. My mother kept a calendar book in which she kept birthdays and deaths and marriages. We were pretty much out of contact with Uncle Elmer until his dad died in Jan. 1944 and his four sons attended the funeral in Plainville, Adams Co., Illinois. There was much catching up to do, but only Uncle Charlie had kin that he claimed. One uncle had family but divorced and his wife put the children in an orphanage. We have no clue that Elmer married.
