I would be happy to order the death certificate for Fred Piette, if you would like. I already have an account set up.Just let me know.
There is a Lottie Chuda, age 13, daughter of Stanley and Anna Chuda living in Chicago in 1920. Might be Fred Piette's wife. The age matches the age of 23 of Fred's wife in 1930. She was born in Illinois about 1907, and had two sisters at that time: Stella and Helen.Do those names ring a bell?Stanley was born about 1879 in Poland and immigrated in 1905, according to the 1920 census. His wife Anna was born about 1890 in Poland.
I'm afraid that Margarette Piette, 2nd wife of Joseph, can't explain the red-hair, since she is not the mother of Fred, and therefore, not the grandmother of Fred Jr and Roseanna.Sorry.
Please let me know if you want me to order that death certificate. Margaret
