Myrtle Baxter married Earl Redlinger.Their child was William C. Redlinger.William married Barbara Corselius.Their children were:Marcia Jean, Sharon Kay, Leona May.
I know James and Jennie Baxter had land in North Dakota – their homestead.In North Dakota there was a John Baxter that owned land close to them.I’m hoping in was a relative.
James and Jennie moved to Washington before 1921.
I know that Jennie’s parents (Francis Freemont Shannon and Melisa Alta Neigh ShannonThomas) had moved to Washington and died there in 1926 and 1939.
I’m at a brick wall for Hale Baxter’s family.I hope someone can see a connection.Anything would be greatly appreciated.
