I am at a brick wall with the following ancestors. If anyone has any tips to share, I would love to compare notes. James A(Allen?)Frame(b1823 VA),married Lizzy(Elizabeth) Conwell. Lizzy(b1835 in Xenia OH to Richard Conwell and Eliza Beatty). She died 21 Mar 1869 in KC MO. Buried in Union Cem.
Here is where I am not sure of things. I have two branches of children where some things line up and some don't.
I believe that James and Lizzy had: Hugh L (b10/1856 MO or OH - d 14 NOV 1912 MO), Walter Allen (b Apr 1859/60 MO or OH), Braden(b 1861 MO), Sarah E(b 1865 MO), Watkins(b 10 Aug 1868 NE,d 9 Aug 1843 Xenia OH), Kate(b 1868/9 MO). When Lizzy died, these children are on the 1870 census living with her mother and sister in Xenia OH.
I am not sure from this point on, but believe James remarried to Alice A. Hunter (b 1843 Eng). They are in the 1910 census with some of the younger children. One of the names that confuse me is Sarah E may possibly have taken on the nickname of Minnie. Same birthdate. I have found the Los Angeles CA death certificate for Minnie (McMillan by marriage) and her parents are listed as Frame and Conwell. Perhaps Minnie (middle name Elizabeth I am guessing after her mothers name? looked like Lizzy and became "Minnie" after her mothers death? Wild guess, but it adds up in too many places with the death certificate. There is also a Richard Frame b 1862 living with James and Alice, but not with Lizzy. He should have been on the 1870 census, unless he stayed with his father when the others went to live with their grandmother. James and Alice have Mabel A (b1878 MO), and Ida (b 1881 MO)in 1910. Watkins, Minnie, and Richard are with this family in 1910. Their mother is listed as being born in OH, not Eng, so Alice is not their mother.
Anyone out there looking for this family please contact me.
