Great Aunt Found

I know now what happened to May Murray, my grandfather’s half-sister, whom I found on the 1910 census.  As Wreatha May Murray, she married Cyril Myron Elwood 3 July 1924 in Marion County, IN.  The  couple lived in Indianapolis for several years and then moved to Adams Township, Allen County, IN.  They had six children.  Sunday morning I was contacted by the daughter of the youngest son.  We compared notes all afternoon and they all matched.  It wasn’t until a couple days later we accessed the Parke County USGenWeb page to find a “corrected” birth record that listed Wreatha May Murray born as the daughter of Samuel F. Murray and Viola Hise.  This is exciting. Laurie lucked out because she received information culled from my many years of research.  What other hobby can bring a new first cousin for your mother and a second cousin for yourself?
