As for background Adeline/Schuler were my great aunt/uncle.Both died in 1936...Schuler in the dayton VA hospital reportedly from gas effects from his WW1 overseas service...Addie died from septicemia caused by an abortion (we have the death certificate on this one).Both are buried in Aurora Indiana...we visit them once or twice a year so if any of the family need photos or locations we can send. This family is an engima to us since they folks who knew anything was either dead (My grandfather Pete- Addies brother was killed in 1947 and my grandmother would say anything since she was the one that took addie to the doctor)It appears that the kids lived with them until they went to CA in 1936.
Ultimately we would like to reconnect with your side of the family.We have a few pictures of buddy and violet and Charles Rust...but nothing of Schuler or Addie on Horatio/Clemance
Thanks for any information on the the Sykes family. below is what we have...do you have those census records on file?
