Jean Ann told family she was from Ohio. Her marriage certificate was witnessed by a Viola BEEDE.
I found an Ohio obituary for a Viola Blanche BEEDE in April, 1967. Died in Oneida, was a native of Cleveland. Surviving are four daughters: Mrs. Harold COSGROVE of Buffalo, Mrs. John GREGORY of Fulton, Mrs. Claude BRYANT and Mrs. Leonard TUFTS; a sister, Mrs. Harry BEST; six grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren.
Are any of those name familiar?
Might this Viola be related to Jean Ann's mother?
