Question: 1900 Macon Co MO, Josie states she has2ch/2surviving....where are they?
Emery b 1902, so he's not one of the ch.Hazel's b/date ranges from 1897-1901
Silas and Hattie, and 4y old Matilda. still together 1915, along with Bonnie Hazel and Emery E,Cowley Co KS; div bet 1917- 1920; Silas m Alice 1920-25.I would imagine the divorce took place in Cowley Co, and probably marriage too.
John and Margaret HOLMAN look good to be Silas' parents. Silas' marriage record says Jr, but this title is often used to differentiate between 2 men of the same name in same town/county.Probably related, but not necessarily father/son.
