US Completed Requests / Cincinnati Obits
« on: Wednesday 01 September 21 15:10 BST (UK)  »
Looking to find the obits of

Alfred Muehlman, 27 Jun 1889-20 Jan 1958, son of Edward and Mary (Mayme) Miller.

Also, his wife, Josephine Muehlman, possibly 1879-1957.  She married Alfred, Feb. 1919, as Josephine Pelton and had a son by the Pelton marriage.  I don't believe she had any children by Alfred.  There is a Josephine Muehlman in Baltimore Pike Cemetery, which might be her.

Any help appreciated.

I need some more eyes on this subject.  WHO WAS LYLAN L  ?????? THOMAS

I am looking for the surname of James Hiram Thomas' 2nd wife.  I have all the information I need on his family and that of his 1st wife, but am stuck trying to find LYLAN'S maiden name or the name of her former (?) husband. 

James' 1st wife was LYLA and they divorced in California between 1930 and 1940.  James is single with the children in 1940, so he and LYLAN probably married between 1940 and 1950.  I emailed the cemetery for any information on her, but all they did was confirm the burial location, which I had included on my request.  I waited 6 weeks for that tidbit of redundant information, so that was a waste of time.

I have found a Mrs. LYLAN Lovell in the SF city directories for 1934/35 which states she may be working at Fort Bragg as a clerk, but haven't been able to find her before or after those years.  She is also referred to as Mrs. LYLAN L Thomas in the obit of James H Thomas and as the administratrix of his estate.

There is an obit for her sister, Mrs. Grace Hobson (b ~1889 possibly NY--d. 7 Dec 1963, Santa Cruz), the most recent wife of Thomas Robert Hobson Sr., a butcher from Ukiah.  The obit mentions her husband, his 3 adult children and her sister, Mrs. LYLAN Thomas and states inurnment was in the IOOF cemetery, aka Santa Cruz Memorial Park.

I haven't been able to find the marriage of James and Lylan, nor the marriage of Grace and Thos Hobson, which might lead to their actual surname.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions on trying to solve this question.
