Hi, My name is Angela and I have a very good friend of the family, Ruth Ellis West, who stumbled upon a picture that was scetched by Wilfrid Worland in 1928. This picutre was a scetched portrait of Mary Jean Ottinger. It was signed by Wilfrid Worland, dated 1928, town of Jasper, IN.
Ruth found this picture behind a portrait of her dad, Lester Ellis, and a friend of his, Orie Alderson. This picture was taken in 1924 or 26, I believe.
If you know anything about who Wilfrid Worland is or who Mary Jean Ottinger was, please respond to this message. Ruth's Father and her mother (Elizabeth Dicker Ellis) had never mentioned the names of Mary Jean or Wilfrid. This is a mystry and she would like to know what, if any, meaning they once had to the Ellis family.
