I have daughters of David Hanselman and Frances E. Ayers as Margaret Dorothy born Dec. 16, 1891 (or 1892) who married a man with the last name of Simons.I have her death date as 1918 making her about 16 or 17 at death. The other daughter as Frances Virginia born June 20, 1890 who married a man with the last name of Pinkston. I have no death date for her.
My question, you said Frances died within a year of David.Is that Frances Elizabeth Ayers?Your grandmother is Frances Virginia Hanselman?I would really appreciate information on your family tree to add to my information.I would also appreciate to know how the information is documented so I would not have to duplicate the work of documentation if it is already done. I would also love to see copies of the letters you mention that your grandmother wrote during the last months of their lives.I love the "human side" of the history!If you are willing to let me see copies of them, please send me an e-mail. Thanks!Suzanna
