I have very little information on my great-grandmother other than her name.She married William H. Diehl, perhaps in Pennsylvania, had two children, Carl William and Cora, and died sometime before 1940.She lived in South Dakota when William was born in 1884 (according to his obituary), and lived in Alabama when her husband died.I know he died on Thanksgiving Day because my father (b. 1906) was living with them at the time, so this was 1912 or a bit later since my father would have had to be old enough to realize what was going on.She also lived in Chicago in 1915 since she and my father nearly were on the Eastland, a lake cruiser which sank in the Chicago River killing some 800 people.
My father, who was quite a realist, believed she was psychic since she "saw" her husband's death in tea leaves, put down the cup and never read them again. On the way to the dock to board the Eastland, she lifted her head, turned around and said "we're going home, Charles."When he protested being deprived of this special treat, she just told him "another time".
If anyone has any clues I'd appreciate hearing from them.
