Wyne, Wampler, Kreuzer
I posted a response to http://genforum.genealogy.com/mo/messages/52732.htmlhttp://genforum.genealogy.com/mo/messages/52732.html and GenForum popped up a recommendation I share the information within the Texas Forum ... so here is goes:
John C. Wyne (Wine) was born in Rockingham County, Virginia to John C. Wyne (Wine) and Elizabeth Zigler (Ziegler) in 1861. He married Eliza C. Wampler, also of Rockinham County, Virginia, in 1889.
Eliza C. Wampler was born in 1867 and the daughter of Joseph Wampler and Lydia Zigler. Joseph Wampler was the son of John Wampler and Mary Cline. Lydia and Elizabeth were daughters of John Ziegler/Zigler and Elizabeth Kline.
After John C. Wyne and Eliza C. Wampler married - his parents and some of his siblings moved to Piatt County, Illinois. John C. and Eliza C. Wyne are said to join in this move. Lydia Zigler Wampler passed away in 1917 and in her death notice Eliza C. is mentioned (as Mrs. Eliza C. Wampler) as to living in Missouri City, Texas.
In John C. and Eliza C. Wyne's 1910 US Census, they are living in Fort Bend, Texas - and a servant (Mat Brashers) is listed in their household. In 1920, the report lists their residence as in Harris County, Texas and having adopted three daughters: Mearl Wyne - about 1903, Texas; Cora Wyne - about 1904, Texas; and Winnie Lee Wyne - about 1907, Texas.
Uncertain if any of the girls were sisters before the Wyne's adopted them. Winnie Lee Wyne appears two times during the 1930 US Census. She is listed in the household of John C. and Eliza C. Wyne. Then appears in Brazoria County, Texas within the household of Paul O. (Oscar Walter) and Mearl Kreuzer; her relationship listed as sister-in-law to the Head of the household.
Mrs. Winnie Lee Collins signed John C. Wyne's 1941 death certificate. Mrs. E. C. Lemmons, using the same residential address as the elder Wyne's, signed Eliza C. Wyne's 1944 death certificate - where Eliza's parents are listed as John Wampler and Lydia Zigler.
I am assuming Lemmons is Cora's married name, but have not verified it to date. I also do not know exactly when, between the two censuses, when the girls were adopted. I am leaning to thinking that only two of them were siblings before the adoption, but that is only my leaning and not supported as I don't know the girls' birth names/surnames.
Mearl Joy Kreuzer, and her husband, are buried in Manvel Cemetery - along with some of their children and members of his family.
John C. Wyne and Eliza C. Wampler did not have children until they adopted the girls between 1910 and 1920. John C.'s sister, Lydia Wyne, married Sprankle Snyder 1889 in Piatt County, Illinois. This was his fourth marriage (previous ones took place in Missouri - Elizabeth Allen, Martha Christina Sabin, Elizabeth (Lizzie) Kyler) and Lydia's first. They moved, with his three sons from his 3rd marriage, to Los Angeles county, California. There, by the 1910 and 1920 US Census reports, Lydia Snyder adopted 4 girls: Ruth Frances (1897 - California), Edna (About 1902 - Missouri), Elsie (About 1902 - United States), and Catherine Snyder (About 1911 - California). Ruth Frances Snyder listed Sprankle Snyder and Lydia Ziegler as her parents when marrying George D. Martin in 1917 in California. It doesn't appear that any of the children Lydia adopted,before Sprankle Snyder died in 1909 and afterwards, were siblings beforehand.
Lydia Wyne and Sprankle Snyder did not have any biological children together. Lydia Wyne Snyder died in Oct. 1935. On family trees Sprankle Snyder can be found listed as Mr. Snyder (from 1906 Ziegler Family Record) or Spangle(r) Snyder (as like in the 1990 edition of Ziegler Family Record and the online Wampler/Wampfler Database). From what I have found, thus far, it does not appear that Sprankle Snyder's sons had any children of their own.
So ... there is all I have so far.
