Thank you so much for the info. The name Vendelia (Vendell) seems close but her maiden name was Meyers.
I can't find any birth record or census for Vendell Helenmeyers in Missouri?
She has listed her birth place on the 1920 censusas born in New York, but in 1930 as South Dakota?
I am so frustrated on trying to get info. I had hoped I could find a relative or some one who knew her back then.
Her son is dead, her husband is dead and my Mom is no help.
I don't know why there is no census for 1910 that has her name on it? I know in 1913 She got married in Saint Louis Missouri as I sent for record. No listing of parents on that. Also her son Raymond was bornin 1914 in Saint Louis,Missouri andI never met him before he died.
