I wanted to post a correction to all of the great information supplied by "m lozer". I've been researching a quilt I recently purchased that has 30 names embroidered on it. That research led me to this posting. In reading through the material I realized an error had been made in the listing of the children of Menno Wyse 1867-1908 and Mary Baer 1869-1908. There were 8 children as mentioned in Mary's obit. They were: Clarence John Jeptha William Kathryn Mary "Katie" Emma Caroline Laura M. Minnie Lydia Vernon
The mistake is in regards to Laura and Minnie. They are listed as one individual...probably assuming the middle initial "M" stood for Minnie. Minnie was actually 3 years younger than Laura and her name was Minnie Lydia. She never married. Laura M.(middle name unknown)1900-1925 was married to Dennis Short, as is stated in the material. Minnie was actually born 27 Mar 1903 and died 12 Sep 2003 at 100 years old. See below:

In addition to providing the name of the deceased, many records include information such as residence, location at time of death, death date, age at time of death, birth date, race, educational level, and father's name.
Minnie appears in the 1962 obit for her sister, Emma Caroline (Wyse) King in the list of her survivors... "2 sisters (Katie - Mrs. Simon King and Minnie Wyse." Laura M. Wyse died in 1925.
Minnie appears to have been raised by Samuel Roth as she is listed as an adopted daughter living with him in the 1930 census. She is also mentioned in his obit as a foster daughter. I tracked the rest of the children and they appear to have been split up and lived with various relatives after the deaths of their parents and grandmother.
I have some additional information if anyone is interested. I just wanted to make sure Minnie's information was corrected.
