My husband's mother's maiden name was Eleanor EARL or EARLE, b. 1918 OCT 31, d. 2001 DEC 9.There is a discrepancy in what it is supposed to be as she always went by EARL, but her "Office of the City Clerk" numbered certificate from Newark, NJ, says EARLE.I've seen one of her brother's same certificates and it also says EARLE. His name was Harold.Their father was Raymond EARL, born in New Jersey, and married Edna KASTNER.He died in the 1930s an alcoholic.Eleanor also had a brother named Raymond EARL and sisters Elaine and Jean.She always told me her father, Raymond, was part Cherokee Indian.The unfortunate part is that I don't know the name of his parents and she didn't remember either!
I hope someone can help me out on these small details!Anyone connected or have any info? Thank you, Brendilee
