Hi, I have an unusual situation that I cannot figure out. I am in search of people related to Francis and Lillian Elizabeth Perrin Runk. She went y Lizzie most of the time. She and Francis married in Franklin Co., Indiana on 2-28-1890. They had the following children according to the census and a birth record. Hurchel Roy Runk b. 4-30-1891 in 1917 living in Jefferson, NE. Cloyd J. Runk b. Feb 22, 1893 in Richmond Indiana Mabel Runk b. Abt 1895 in Indiana Cecil Runk b. Abt 1900. Fenil Runk b. Abt. 1898 Emma Runk b. Abt 1901 Eva Runk b. Abt 1906 Carl Everett Runk b. 3/23/1908 Indiana Ralph Runk b. Abt 1912 or 1913
This is where it gets confusing. In February 1915 My gg grandfather James H. Sandlian married a woman by the name ofLillian Elizabeth Runk in Hill City, Graham Co., KS. This woman who went by Lizzie had a son named Ralph who on the 1915 census was 3. On the census he is listed as Ralph Sandlian and there is a 9 month old girl named Lura or Lara Sura not sure Sandlian. I am trying to determine if this Lizzie is the same as the Lizzie married to Francis Runk. By 1920 she is living as a housekeeper in Wisconsin with a daughter Eva and son Ralph. The ages correspond to the other Lizzie. The birthdates match up and all. I am trying to determine if Francis and Lizzie divorced and she married my gg grandfather and if the 9 month old daughter was a Sandlian or a Runk. If anyone is related to this family that would be great. Francis was not dead as he was living with the son in Blackford, Indiana.
