Ada Gaither b. Apr 1886, Illinois, daughter of John R. Gaither and Cordelia Sweet, married Walter Scott Allyn (b. 2 Dec 1876, Franklin County, IL, d. 30 Oct 1938, Canton, Fulton County, IL, buried 3 Nov 1938, Benton, IL).I think (but have not confirmed) that their children were Gertie Allyn Kaemper b. abt 1904-1905, Irma Allyn Mesch (b. abt. 1906-1907, m. Homer Mesch 5 Apr 1901- 23 Oct 1968, later divorced?), and Myrtle Allyn Koempel (b. abt. 1908-1909).Walter may also have had a daughter, Alexenia Allyn Jackson (1901-1972) by his first wife, Maude Moore (1880-1903).
Ada Gaither Allyn is NOT the same person as the Ada Allyn d. 1941-11-23 Sangamon Co. who is listed in the online Illinois death index.
I am researching the Allyn family and would be interested in additional information about Ada Gaither Allyn and her children.
