About Our Family Research
I am looking for my grandmothers' nationality. She gave the names "Roy Blain" and "Myrtle Lanear" as her parents on her Social Security application. She said on the same application that she was born March 26 1901. The name she went by was "Bessie". She married Otis Leonard in Hannibal, Missouri on 20 March, 1917. She had a friend (relative) called Ern Lanear. She also had friends and/or relatives in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. She raised a family in Hull, Illinois before moving to York, Nebraska. She died Dec.7, 1991 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Any information from any aquaintances will be much appreciated. Thanks, Ben
