Re: Ellsworth shook/Cala Shook/Jean McClead/Esther McClead
I think Cala is Cuba and the census taker just messed up her name.In the 1940 census the two MCCLEAD girls, Jean and Esther, are listed as stepdaughters.
On the marriage record Ellsworth's middle name is given as Loyd.
There's a OH death index listing for an Ellsworth Lloyd SHOOK b. 10-June-1806 in PA, d. 26-Mar-1989 in Barberton, Summit, OH
Do you know if Ellsworth and Cuba/Cala had children together after 1940?
I can't find anything on the two MCCLEAD girls.
On the 1940 census Cala states she is 27 and born in OH.I did a very broad search for any girls named Cuba Jean born in OH between 1910 and 1916 and left the last name blank.There was a Cuba Jean WRIGHT b. 1-Apr-1913 in Washington, OH, daughter of John V.B. WRIGHT and Della MORGAN.
I then searched for Cuba Jean WRIGHT and found a WV marriage record for her to Clyde G. MCCLEAD in Pleasants, WV in 1931.
This is her family in the 1930 in St. Marys, Pleasants Co, WV:
WRIGHT, John V.B. age 45 b. IN, both parents b. IN
wife Delta E. age 41 b. WV, both parents b. WV
dau Cuba J. age 17 b. OH
son Edgar W. W. age 14 b. WV
son J. Denton age 13 b. WV
dau Kathleen age 9 b. WV
dau A. Lenore age 7 b. WV
servant ROBINSON, Irene age 20 b. WV
In 1920 they were in Washington, Pleasants, WV with just the three oldest children.
There's a familytreemaker site with Delta MORGAN WRIGHT's lineage, but it looks like they were off a generation on ages:
