West Virginia Vital records has recently given some clues about the family of Elza Shultz, b April 1863, to John and Amy/Emma Gregg Shultz. Elza and his wife, Dora, were listed as the parents of bride, Ola Shultz b 1896, in her marriage to M (Mike) Chiule in 1926. Mike and Viola Chiule (sometimes spelt Chinle) show up on the 1930 census in Morgantown, with Mike listed as a music teacher, and a immagrant from Greece in ca 1903.
If accurate, we now had 3 names in the Shultz family, prior to Ola's marriage, Elza, Dora and Ola. In looking again on
the 1930 census, Church District, Wetzel County, WVa I found a neighbor of Emma Gregg Shultz Tustin (Elza's mother's second husband, William Tustin) listed as Eliot Tustin, wife Dora and 4 daughters, but with 3rd daughter listed as Ola, born April 1896. My thought is Eliot Tustin is actually Elza SHULTZ, and listed under the surname of his mothers second husbands surname.
Other daughters of Eliot/Elza and Dora (need maiden name)
were, Lilly b April 1889, Ada b May 1892, Ola (Viola) b April 1896 and Mary b ca 1899.
Known now, with further research is that Viola Hope Shultz Chiule and her husband Mike (also listed as Constantine) both died in the area of Los Angeles, Ca. Viola in September 1948, and Mike in January 1990 at age 105.
West Virginia Vital Records also list marriages to 2 other
Shultz daughters, but it is unknown that they are daughters of Elza and Dora Shultz.
Can anyone confirm the parents of Lillian and Mary Shultz who were involved in these marriages?
Lillian Shultz, m Frederick Barrows
Mary Shultz, m Oscar McLaughlin
Anyone researching these families, and possibly have
