Nancy, You are not grasping at straws!!! Let me know if this info fits with what you may have. Yes, I do have a female Idiker that married a Carter. I have a Whilhelmine(Minnie) Caroline Idiker. She was first married to Otto J. Buehler on March 4, 1911. Walter W. Carter was Born Jan. 27, 1912. I don't have a divorce date for Otto and Minnie or a marriage date for her and Wilson R. Carter.Wilson R. Carter adopted Walter. I would greatly appreciate ANY info on Walter that you might have. (pictures, marriage date, wife's name, children, obit., just any info at all would be wonderful.)Walter would have been a first cousin to my mother. My grandfather and his mother were brother and sister. Please e-mail me privately and I can send you more info on the family history. I tried to e-mail you privately but it didn't show a complete e-mail address so please, you contact me. Looking forward to hearing from you.
