I have a Great Grand Aunt named Mary Elizabeth Trammel (b. 14 Dec 1855 in Allen Co, KY, d. 19 Aug 1943) who married George T. Dalton. Mary was my grandfather's aunt.She was in a state mental hospital in Hopkinsville, KY.George Dalton apparently remarried after she went into the hospital.When I found the death record from the hospital, it showed her mother as Martha Vanhoover (probably VanHooser). Family records clearly show her mother was Martha J. (Johnson) Trammel.After just now re-reading the certificate, I began thinking outloud online.Who is Martha vanHooser?There is a close connection between the Trammels and vanHoosers through several marriages.Martha Johnson was 72 when her husband, John W. Trammel, died.Did she re-marry at that late age?Probably not.Was incorrect information given to the hospital?Good chance.Was Martha vanHooser related to John W. Trammel in some way?More questions to be asked.Anyone have any thoughts??
