The above was the daughter of William Wellington Craven and Alice Victoria Curley and at 1940 US census she was single living with her widowed mother in Detroit, Wayne.


Alice Victoria (Curley) Craven died in 1971. Her daughter Alice is mentioned in her obit as Mrs. Augustus (Alice) Ledyard.

According to various trees on Anc she passed away 28 Mar 1974 and lived at 48236 Grosse Pte Shores, Wayne as Ledyard? The problem is that none of the trees say who her Ledyard husband was and when they married  (other than 1940) or have sources for these 'facts.'
There was an Augustus Canfield Ledyard who passed away in the same area and is buried at Elmwood Cemetery as was she but have separate gravestones. I wonder if these 2 are linked by marriage and if there were any children?

 Augustus Ledyard Married

IMPORTANT news socially is the simple announcement that came from Mrs. William Wellington Craven, of Crane Ave., yesterday, telling of the marriage of her daughter Alice V. Craven, to Augustus Canfield Ledyard, of Cloverly Road, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ledyard, and a scion of one of Detroit's oldest families.
   The marriage took place in St. Louis on Sept. 7, and Mr. and Mrs. Ledyard will live on Cloverly.

Mt. Auburn Cemetery appears to be an African American Cemetery, so can I assume she was black?

Cemetery records have birth year as 1884 with same DOD as mentioned.

Is this her?

Searching for details of my great grandmother Sarah (Sadie) Gregg.


Death:
We believe Sarah (Gregg) McMahon died in the late 1950's/early 1960's in Chicago.


I would love to know if anyone id connected to either James O'Connor or Mr McMahon as I have no knowledge of Sarah Gregg's life after her 1st husband (O'Connor) died.


Sarah died in 1963. Her 2nd husband was John F. McMahon

Added:

James's death is mentioned twice on this page. Once with the other listed death notices and then again in an article in the first column. His sister died a few hours before he did on the same day.

"In 1997 Pauline passes away with her surname being McFarland."

Where does this information come from?  There is a record at Find-a-Grave for Pauline Algood McFarland [1930 - 2017], daughter of Albert and Bertha Algood.  She was born in Grundy Center.  She died and was buried in Waterloo, Iowa.  I haven't checked this out, but I'm guessing that Albert Algood was a brother of Jesse Algood.  So this Pauline would be a 'step cousin' of Pauline Edythe [Peppler] Buchan Harris

Neither Pauline nor Alice lived with the grandparents in 1915.


1915 Iowa state census, Grundy Center, Grundy County -


https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-C9PN-S4ZG?i=1988&cc=2240483  [and subsequent images]

Pauline is transcribed as Pauline Pepples in the  1915 census.

1915: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QK4R-1GY7

Her card is (Image 1794) and her father Henry is listed on the preceding image (1793)

==================

Alice' s obit (Alice L. Hansen) in 1983 states she is the daughter of K. A. and Margaret E. Buchan Taylor.

Margaret/Maggie is Eva's older sister by 2 years.

Obit: https://waterloo.newspaperarchive.com/waterloo-courier/1983-06-01/page-6/

Alice also appears to be an out or wedlock birth as Pauline was.

Margaret/Maggie married George Halfwassen in 1913 and got remarried to Kinsey A. Taylor in 1919. The first marrige record list Maggie as "Miss", indicating she hasn't been previously married.

It appears to be an interesting family dynamic involving Pauline and other members of the family.

There are numerous articles and tidbits (local gossip...who's visiting who) in the the Grudy County papers.

When Pauline (Mrs Ralph Harris) is mentioned in articles/snippets involving any of the children of George A Buchan and Mary Elizabeth Longnecker she is often referred to as their sister.

1900 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M9KL-V93


When Pauline (Mrs Ralph Harris) is mentioned in articles/snippets involving Eva (Mrs Jesse Allgood) she is referred to as her daughter.

When Pauline (Mrs Ralph Harris) is mentioned in articles/snippets involving George A or Mrs Alex Buchan she is referred to as granddaughter.

========

In Mrs. Alex Buchan (Mary Elizabeth Longnecker)'s obit in 1938 Pauline is referred to as her granddaughter who she reared.

"Two granddaughters, Mrs J. Ralph Harris of Waterloo and Mrs. Elvin Hansen of Waterloo were reared by Mrs Buchan."

================

It appears the Alice listed below Pauline's name in the 1920 census is actually a granddaughter also.

1920 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M8B5-CZW

Alice also appears to have a delayed birth record(changed), listing George A Buchan and Mary Elizabeth Longnecker as her parents.
