I am researching Nellie Rae Fields, who is the oldest of eleven children of Cora Belle (Westfall) and Lewis Fields.
Nellie is buried with her second husband George Turner Arnold (1880-1972) and her daughter (Barbara Lue Hyde 1928-1969) from her first marriage to Leo Dodds Hyde In the Mount Tamalpais cemetery in San Rafeal, CA.
Leo Dodds Hyde married his first wife Clara Connell 8/26/1903 Lyon Co, Kansas
Leo and Clara’s children were: (Both Leo and Clara are buried in the Reading Cemetery: Leo 1881-1936, Clara 1882-1916...and there is a Clara Delbert Hyde 1916-1916)
#1 Preston Connell age 12 in 1915 census Reading Kansas (He is buried in the Mountain View Cemetery in Longmont, Colorado) he married Adeline Lucille Woolery 1931, she is also buried inMountain View Cemetery.Preston: March 18, 1905-May 21, 1984, Adeline: Jan 26, 1915- June 16, 1982.
#2 Audrey age 10 in 1915 census Reading Kansas(census says MALE)
#3 (James) Porter age 4 in 1915 census Reading Kansas (He is buried in the Reading Cemetery 1910-1920
#4 Imogene age 2 in 1915census Reading Kansas
#5 Edward L. age 4 months in 1915 Reading.He is buried in the Reading Cemetery. (Dec 18, 1914-1966)
Leo’s draft registration 9-12-1918 Lyon County shows he has remarried to Nellie Fields…
I believe that Leo’s wife Clara (Connell) died in childbirth in 1916.
If anyone knows about the death of Leo’s wife Clara, or more Leo and his children, I would love to hear from you.
An obit for Leo Dodds, Clara A. , Clara Delbert, Audrey, James Porter and Edward L. would be wonderful.I would like to know if Imogene was married.
