Hi there, Ethel was my Granny...I am amazed at the info you have on everyones occupation!!
I am pretty sure Olive died of a burst appendix, I have seen a photo of her years ago and she was beautiful.
I believe Aubrey was killed in a car crash.
Carrie never married, she went by Caroline and lived in Boise, ID.
Ethel married my Grandpa Clark S. Williamson and they ran her fathers grocery store in Gooding until they retired and sold it.
