I don't have answers to your questions but do have a question of you.I study Aleut/Alutiiq heritage and have a LIPTRAP family in the Kodiak area.
Estella E. (?) LIPTRAP (b. 26 Sep 1891 IL; d. 6 Mar 1964 CA) had a son Edward E. LIPTRAP (b. 20 Sep 1910 IL; d. 9 Sep 1973 CA) who married Ruby Elizabeth PECKHAM (b. 15 Jan 1909 IL; d. 9 Mar 1986 CA).
Edward & Ruby had a son Lawrence Edward "Larry" LIPTRAP was born 17 Aug 1939 CA.Their daughter Beverly Ann LIPTRAP (b. 2 Jun 1937 CA) m. in Kodiak on 26 Nov 1955 William For(r)est "Bill" HARTMAN (b. 14 Mar 1930).
My question, is your "Edward Eldridge Liptrap 1889-1941 md: 1909 Stella Schramer divorced and remarried Stella, they lived in Santa monica, CA" the same as mine?
