Re: George Austin Graham and family of Fox River

Funny thing Dave...
When reading Steve's postings, I learned Austin & Claude Graham were descendants of my James William Law & Rebecca Mason!
Looks like I helped **myself** as well as you!

Dave,

You can see the widowed Margaret Graham in the 1940 US census on the LDS FamilySearch site.  Here's the specific page for her:

Hi Bruce:

Thanks. Another clue to work with.

I’ll make that notation in his file notes: “Family may have moved to New Haven, Conn. sometime before 1930”.

I believe the family went to New Haven ,Connecticut. I see similar names in the 1930 US census but don’t have the means to look further.

Hi Steve:

Looking at the 2’s of the two people on the same line to the left, I’d say it’s a 3.

Is Maud's d.o.b. 2 or 3 Sept. 1911. I try to  magnetize it more than the scan but it didn't help me.

Hi Steve:

Thanks for your  extra set of eyes.

I’ll keep the name at Maud Naomi? Graham in my file.  Maybe it was the registrar who couldn’t spell worth beans.

Maud’s  sister, Gertrude Ella Graham m/1 Roy Dawson Joyce and stayed “local” but I  don’t know what happened to their parents or their three surviving siblings.  

Anyway, another small hole filled in the  tree.

Hi  Dave
I looked at the scan and it looks as if her middle name starts with  an 'N' but the ending doesn't look like the other e's in the scan, and the m  looks different. I still believe you are correct in the assumption that her  name in Naomi or close to  that.

Anyone know what Maud's middle name is from her death record scan?  Neomie?

Appears Austin and Maggie lost two of their children within a  week of each
other from sickness caused by a waste water/drinking water  issue.
