If you were here right now, I would kiss you, as you have really made my day. Don't know if you are male or female, but I would kiss you anyway. As I was having trouble finding anything on the Waster spelling, I figured it was probably a wrong spelling, but couldn't figure what it would be. Do you have any other magic up your sleeve? I haven't tried yet this morning, but do you think you could find where Melvina "Vina" Woster/Wooster might be buried ? If she stayed with him, (he was her 3rd husband).
After I eat my breakfast, I'll check for her under the new spellings on the 1880 census. I noticed that your last name is Rhodes, is there a chance that your ancestors could have come from Derbyshire, then before that Yorkshire, Eng. descended from Gerod de Rodes, Lord of Melles, whose descendants came to the Philadelphia, Pa. area in early 1700's ? That is one of my lines on my father's side.
Thanks Thanks for your great help.
