Possibly have discovered another wife of Fred BARTLING of St. Joseph, Buchanan co., Missouri. Found a marriage certificate for Fred BARTLING and Ida B. MOONEY, taking place in 1902. Haven't found what happened to Ida yet.
This is amusing, because in Aug 1910 he married Florence "Stella" MOONEY Hughes, a widow. She died about 6 months later. Six months after that, Fred married Bertha HANNERS, a first cousin to Stella on the MOONEY side.Making Fred 3 wives all from the MOONEY family.
A problem I have now is to find if Ida is related to the other two girls.Her father, William, was listed as being born in Missouri, and HIS father was from Tennessee.The other two girls' parents, Jasper MOONEY, and his sister, Elizabeth MOONEY HANNERS, were born in Indiana, and the fathers' father Thomas MOONEY, was born in Pennsylvania.
Fred BARTLING had children with Bertha. They were Marie Fay, Harry Wayne, Doyle, Eunice, and Grace Kathrin who never made it to her 2nd birthday.Marie married an Allen HARTMAN. Harry married a Jeanette FETTING.Eunice married Virgil STRECK. I believe most of them stayed in the Buchanan county area or at least Missouri. Is there anyone who is of this family?Please contact me to share info.
