I just recently started doing our family genealogy and found Christopher C Columbus to be my great grandfather. I would love to have this site transferred to me that is possible . I have information that I would like to add. Please email me at valerie6061@me. com. Have a nice day.
Fay H Collins I am seeking info on my darling aunt Fay Hutchinson Collins. The youngest of 11 children. Last time we were all together I got all 5 surviving sisters together. Such delightful and loving "girls". Super attitudes!!! I will research photos and hopefully provide some. Thank you! Any info you may have will be very appreciated! Smiles, Debbie
I was not aware of a second marriage, but it certainly looks like you are right even though I could not confirm it through anything other than her death record. Grant was listed as a widower on the 1930 census, so they must have married sometime between then and her death in 1933.
I searched old newspapers all morning, but could find nothing in them about the second Mrs. Auer. However, I did find an article in the Edwardsville Intelligencer that revealed the circumstances of Grant Auer's death. He was a psychiatrist and committed suicide in his daughter's attic following a nervous breakdown.
Grant took his life the day before what would have been the first anniversary of his second wife's death. Coincidence? I was unable to find anything about her cause of death. She was only 46. I wonder what part that played in Grant's subsequent breakdown.
If you come across any additional information, I would really appreciate it if you would let me know.
