Jerry writes:
"Etta Mae originally married Charles O. WILLISON, s/o Alfred WILLISON & Allie TWIGG.
Charles was killed on July 20, 1910, in a farming accident. (The hayrake that
he was riding hit a bump, threw him off, and the rake ran over him.) They had no children."

"Etta Mae then married my G-Grandfather, Gernia Hascal McELFISH.
They had one daughter, Hilda Laverne McELFISH on June 16, 1916.
Etta Mae died 10 days later. Hilda had had a twin that the doctor / midwife
hadn't known about, she had never been properly taken care of medical-wise,
and developed a fatal infection. She is buried in the Chaneysville Methodist Church
Cemetery, in Chaneysville, alongside my G-Grandfather, Gernia McELFISH."
Thank you Jerry for sharing the photo and her story!
