Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband and I enjoy being photo volunteers. I use Find-A-Grave to research my family's genealogy and maintain and/or create their sites when possible. I like to include biographical sketches, family links and photos in hopes that will help others who are researching the same lines. I am researching Porter, VanPatten, Starns, Lewis, Hogg, Lawson, Kolp, Proctor, Childs, McCoy, Aplington, Bruner and more. If you see errors please let me know.

Since 2014 I have been researching people whose unclaimed cremains are being stored at the Oregon State Hospital. After researching their lives I try to find living relatives to let them know where their family member's ashes are. I have been lucky to make many connections.

Rupert E. Dailey, d.1932
First of all, thank you very much for the time and effort you have put into these memorials! They are very helpful to folks searching and documenting their family histories.

I am distantly related to the wife of Rupert's brother George A. Dailey (1907-1991), and I always like to document the parents of "in-law" spouses, therefore I spent some time today trying to document this rather difficult family. I am offering my findings for your consideration -- it appears there are a couple of improvements to the very nice bio that was prepared.

Regarding the Rupert Dailey Sr. Family:

Illinois Statewide Marriage Index shows Rupert J. Dailey to Ida Able, 7 MAY 1898, license #276228, Cook County.
1910 census, Oklahoma City Ward 6, lists the "Robert"(33) and Ida(36) Dailey family with children Lester (11), Rupert(8), Alfred (6), Verneta (4), and George (0).
Back to 1900 census, searching for Rupert born England 1876 married to Ida with son Lester.
1900 census, Bloom Twp., Cook County, IL, lists Reuben Dill, age 26, born England, 19 years in the U.S.A., wife Ida, age 25, married two years, with son Lester, born 1899.
1900 census index lists no other reasonable Rupert/Robert and Ida Dailey candidate families, with son Lester and reasonably matching demographics.
Back to 1880 searching for Ida Able born Germany 1874.
1880 census, Newburg, Washington County, WI, lists Ida Abel, 8, born Wisconsin, daughter of Julius and Eve Abel, both born Germany.
1880 census index lists no other Ida Abel/Ables, born Wisconsin or Germany, of reasonable age.

Therefore, regarding Rupert E. Dailey, Jr., died 1932 at Salem, Oregon, I believe the correct birth year would be about 1901/1902, and the father was Rupert Dailey and the mother was Ida Abel. The rest of the information is subtantially correct.

His brother George Alfred Dailey (1907-1991) appears to have first married a Ruby V. before 1930 and had a son, Gene P. Dailey, born about MAY 1929, as listed on the 1930 census, Wenatchee Dist. 0044, Chelan County, p.8B. This marriage was over by 12 NOV 1936 when he married Hazel Louise Snearley at Clark County, Washington. They are listed with son Robert in the 1940 census, Portland, Multnomah County, OR, ED 37-156, p.1B. George A. Dailey died 26 JUN 1991 at Multnomah County, per the SSDI and Oregon Death Index.

RE: Darrel Wang
I believe my cousin Kris Parker has already claimed them. She invited me up there (I'm in California) for a simple service and scattering of the ashes, and I wanted to go so bad, but couldn't. Her grandmother was Darryl's mother. Is there any way of knowing where he was for the first 6 years of his life? I don't believe he was admitted into the hospital until he was six and a half. It's so sad.

Dear Phyllis: thank you so much for creating a page for little Darrel. His mother was my grandmother's sister, so I'm related somehow, not sure what. I enjoy Findagrave very much: you meet the nicest people! Best regards, Susan

Walter Gluyas
By doing family research I think Walter & his wife (my GG Aunt) Catherine divorced. She and her first husband had 5 kids. She married Charles Langmack in 1922 & he died in 1923 & then she married Charles Kuhl in 1924. She died in 1930 & is buried in Linwood cemetery in Galesburg Il. I linked Walter to her as her second husband. Pam
