Am looking for parents siblings etc. of Mary E. Dow.She was born in Penna.Her husband was William WAID 1865-1928.Her children were Ralph 1888-1933, Hazel 1889-1976, Kenneth 1892-1914, Georgianna b. 1894 m. William Wells before 12/1928; Harriett 1896-1980 and Douglas, b. (probably not long) after 1900 census.
Mary Dow WAID with husband and above named children (except for Douglas, who as mentioned presumably was born later) plus an Agnes DOW, b. 1883, appear in 1900 census in Tidioute, Warren Co., PA.
Mary's son Kenneth died as result of workplace accident in 1914.Family had by then relocated from Tidioute to Oil City, in Venango Co., PA.Obit of Kenneth Waid suggests that move occurred about 1909.
1900 census indicates Mary Dow Waid was born 1865, but headstone in cemetery in Oil City says 1863.There are instances in which women older than their husbands fudged their age, so I'd wager on the earlier date but am uncertain.
Mary's eldest son Ralph Dow Waid 1888-1933 was my maternal grandfather.Would love to hear from any kin.(I believe Mary's children Kenneth, who despite his death at an early age had issue, and Georgianna Wells may have living descendants.)Thank you.
