I am tthe younger son of Doris I. Salisbury, dau of William Frank & Jessie Pearl Tharp (not Tharpe, as I thought when I wrote original query) & Frederick Rice Salisbury. I searched for Frank (the only name I had ever heard) until someone came across my query and recognized who I was looking for. I have gotten a lot of material since, but there are always questions. Peter Austin's wife. is called "Ada" on 1910 census of Douglas, Converse County, WY and "Adeline" on the 1920 census. The mortician's records of Douglas say, in part under AUSTIN; "Ada died 30 Oct 1946 ... wife of Snyder Austin ... Father ____ Hagar." and "Snyder P. ... wife - Adeline Purcell". Peter's obit says, "He leaves his wife, Ada, ...". The notice of Ada/Adeline's death says, "She was born Ada Hager at Iowa City, Iowa in 1874." I have no idea where the name Purcell/Pursell comes from. I have received no replies to queries on the subject. I would love tocompare notes on the Austins.
