I am looking for information on the following family:
Ella J. Hattery, born 1880 in Crawford County, IA. She first married John Edwards on 23 Sep 1896 in Denison, Crawford, IA.They divorced in 1903 after having 4 children: Alma, Alfred, Elton, and May.
In the 1925 Iowa State census, I found Ella listed as Ella J. Kryselmier living as a boarder in Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie, IA.She was listed as a widow. Her parents were listed as Solomon Hattery and Martha Mowery which is correct.
In the 1920 census I found her living with her daughter May in Dow City, IA.She was listed as married, but had no husband living with her. She had a son living with her, a 10 yr old boy named Merle E. Kryselmeier.
Does anyone know anything about this family? I am wondering who Ella's husband might have been.I am unsure as to what happened to Merle.I would love to hear from anyone who may have some info.Thanks in advance!
