OkGertrude Ellen was my grandmother.She married Charles Kenneth McCallister (from Garretts bend in Lincoln county) and they had 12 children.Family joke is ... my grandpa a lincoln countyMcCallister married a Putnam county Mccallister...people say are we related?We have no way of knowing.The children were as follows:
William Cadeborn 8/8/08 Vada Agnesborn 06/18/10 Howard Davidborn 07/05/12 Lester1914 Ada Virginiaborn3/26/16 Earl Richardborn7/15/17 Ivan O'dellborn12/9/19 Loretta Ida mae1925 Selman James Orin kenneth08/08/31(My Dad)
The oldest and the youngest were born on the same day 23 years apart. Many of the children died in infancy; this info came from my Aunt Vada, who raised my dad from age 6, when Gertrude died of umbilical hernia according to the death certificate, but Aunt Vada said her "bowels locked"
I *think* Gertrude was bornabout March 19, 1888 and she died July 31, 1937.
I remember Uncle Sam Foose coming to my aunt Vada's house and my Dad talks about remembering him.Wonder who Narnin was?Ohh... I love it when things start to click!!
