My mom always told me that her grandma's father was a traveling Baptist minister. She said today that her mom told her that.
Grandma's name was Ethel V Duncan who was listed in 1930 Census as married to Elija W. Tallent in St. Louis (ward 7, independent city and having daughter Goldie V. Tallent born June 6, 1919--my grandma).
She was also married two other times, one to a BURKE (and had son Finley A. Burke) and to a VOORHIS. According to mom's sister in the 80's, Ethel's parents names were Elija(Elijah) and Mary (Marie) which supports an old tin-type picture we have of her holding Finley as a baby (1940/1941)and on back it says:"To M.L. Duncan Esther from Ethel Burke"
My email email@example.com you want to contact me further, we have several pictures of Ethel, Goldie and Grandma Duncan and you can definitely tell Ethel is almost full blooded Indian
