I have now figured out how to post directly to this forum!
I am particularly interested in any information you have on Lillie Mae Adolph and what led to your reference to her as Lillie Mae Sherwood in one message.This fits nicely with information I found on a handwritten chart recently--that my greatgrandfather William Sherwood had married Lillie after the death of his wife in 1886.He was living in her house at the age of 11 in Beverly, Burlington Co., NJ at the time of the 1900 federal census.Her three sons were in the house too, including George W. Adolph.Lillie had three sons: Alfred W. (b. Sept. 1886 in New Jersey); Ellwood (b. Jan. 1888 in New Jersey), and George W. (b. May 1889 in New Jersey).
In the 1920 federal census, there is an Ellwood C. Adolph, 31 (b. in New Jersey), living in Detroit, Wayne Co., Michigan, with wife Bessie M., 30 (b. in Indiana) and 2 lodgers. In the 1930 census, Ellwood and Bessie Adolph are in Washington, DC. Bessie is b. in 1892. The SS death index says Ellwood was b. Jan 1, 1888, and d. January 1965 in Washington, DC. The WWI draft index gives his name as Ellwood Connor Adloph and his b. as Jan 1, 1888.
Did Lillie Adolph (Sherwood) remain in NJ?Do you know when she died or where she is buried?I also ran into a handwritten note that William Sherwood was buried in "Burlington Cemetery".I am not sure which cemetery that is, but it fits with Burlington Co., NJ.
