Edward was born in either 1878 or 1880 in Indiana.His father was born in Indiana and his mother in New York state.
Edward's first wife was Icie Combes, born around 1880 in Ohio.They were married around 1905.We have a picture of Icie we can send as a jpg if requested.
Edward and Icie had twin girls, Ella M., and Effie Bright, born April 24, 1907 in Illinois.
Edward's 2nd wife was Alice M. ?.She was born in 1882 in Indiana.In the 1920 census, Edward and Alice are already married and Alice's daughter Hazel E. is 7 years old, born about 1913 in Illinois.She has taken Edward's last name.
Also listed in the 1920 census is Alice and Edward's infant,Dorothy Bright, who is 4 months old and was born in Indiana.In 1930 Dorothy should have been about 10 years old, but she is not listed with Edward, his wife Alice, and Hazel.
The family's residence in 1920 is 3826 Maryland Ave, Gary City, Lake County, Indiana.
In 1930 the Bright family is living at 306 Cecil Ave, Buchanan, Berrien. Michigan.
I would love to hear from anyone who knows something more about this family or anyone who might be related.
