This was interesting. I have never seen my grandmother's name as Ellen. Actually her name is Ella Mae Casner and they were married May 4, 1909. I don't think the weekly Chariton newspaper was always what we call objective with what they had to write. Little has changed with newspapers.
Ella Mae Casner Maddy (born Jan. 22, 1893 died Aug. 16, 1970) buried at Zion Cemetery, Lucas Co, IA Eunice Casner (sister) Edward Casner (brother)
My ggrandfather Casner, the father to Ella, Eunice and Edward was killed when his car started rolling down a hill - he is a very old man at the time - and the car ran over him while he attempted to re-enter the car, killing him. I cannot find his first name.
I would be very interested in hearing from anyone knowing this line of Casner.
