I am searching for my Grandmother's ancestors and siblings.
Orva Alice Michael, b.1905 in NW Missouri, d. 1967 in Rocky Ford Colorado.She married Andrew Blaine Sweany, b.1885 in Gentry Mo, d.1971 in Rocky Ford Colorado, on 11 Jun 1911 in Chilicothe MO.
Andrew and Orva had 2 children: Bonita, b.???, in Braymer MO, and Eugene Blaine (my father), born in Kansas.
According to our picture album, they lived in Wichita KS for awhile.
I know that Orva had two sisters: Bonita and Viola.There may have been other brothers and sisters that I don't know about.
I understand that Orva's father abandoned the family and her mother died shortly thereafter, leaving all of the children as orphans.Orva (maybe because she was the oldest?) tried to hold the family together, but could not.It was a burden to my Grandmother for her whole life.
