Re: Violet Eckelberry
Madge,I tried to email you whenever you sent me an email but it was returned.Yes, Violet was the daughter of William Isaac Eckelberry and Martha Jane Benjamin.
William was the son of George and Martha Conaway Eckelberry.
George was the son of John Henry Eckelberry and Catherine Alspair.
There is a Eckelberry Family site at MyFamily.com.If you would please send me your email, I will send you an invitation to join.It is free. There is a picture of Evan Walters at the site.It is on page 19 of the photos.There are pictures of two of his children, Ada, from his first wife, and Edna, from Evan's second wife.
You will be related to most of the people at the site.
You will want to download the Eckelberry file that is available there.I would suggest that you download Kathy's.Or I would be glad to send you mine.You need a family program such as Family Tree Maker to download.
I also have a little on Evan and family.Here is Evan's obit:
