Here's what I have on Amanda Ellen's life and times. She married John J. GRESER, they lived in Craley, and had a daughter named Ellen. (details below)
That Bible (below) confuses me. It's written in blue ink, probably all in one go; and then black ink, with sister Jane's death date almost as an after-thought.
First, her name and birth date, followed by her husband's birth & death dates written at the same time, probably after his death in 1945, and then her name again. Period. Same pen as Melvina Jane's the date of death at the bottom. By whose hand?
Next, sisters and brothers, in no clear order. By
preference, maybe? Not that I have any notion of how to live with 15 siblings, anyway!
