I have more accurate information now but would like to id Gladys.
I have George Hess m. to Nettie Frakes who have a daughter following their marriage in 1885; her name is Minnie E. Hess, which might be short for Minerva.However, I have Minerva marrying a "Shortridge."Do you have a previous marriage of Minerva (Jos.) Smith to a Shortridge?
Then Gladys would be the daughter of Minnie and Joseph Smith?
