Many relatives sent photos to me over the years as I worked on genealogy and became known as the family historian. One day while I was looking through files I discovered I had numerous photos of children. I decided to do a story about them. For clarification, first cousins have the same grandparents, second cousins the same great grandparents and so on. Once removed refers to a person in another generation, say your father’s first cousins. Twice removed indicates a grandparent’s first cousin. This is the second page.

14) The photograph is of Everett Chester Winkler, circa 1909 in Kentucky, son of Iva Gates Winkler and Mag Nettie Rowland. His mother died when he was 13 years old and that left a lasting impression on him. He was a cartographer and worked on maps of the Japanese coast during World War II. He married Dorothy Dinah Feeney and they became my parents-in-law.

15) These children are my first cousins, twice removed in about 1915, children of Ludacia Early and William McGonigle. They are my maternal grandmother’s first cousins. Back row: Margaret, Gertrude, John and Mary. In front: Annabel. Gertrude was an avid genealogist and provided me with her research of the history of Earlys, Spaldings, and Abells. She and her niece, Arlene McCarroll Baker, visited Kentucky libraries and found additional information on these families. Their research solved many mysteries for me. Gertrude and Arlene’s combined work made my compilation possible. Gertrude never married, and worked for the film industry in Oklahoma City where she lived.

Tischhauser at 17 years old, is fourth from right holding a baritone tuba. His younger brother, Oscar at 12 years old, is center, holding a trombone. It was the John Philip Sousa era, and bands acquired uniforms and performed Sousa music for parades and holidays like 4th of July and Memorial Day.

22) These two sad-looking little boys are orphans! Their parents were Patrick Aloysius McNerney and Louise Jackle of Zanesville, Ohio, see Nos. 4 and 7. Patrick is the oldest, born in 1908, and Joseph in 1909. The photograph was taken in 1915. In 1913, a great flood swept through Zanesville on the Muskingum River. Louise was rescued from her flooded home. She died days later of peritonitis. Their father died in 1914 of an epileptic attack brought on by alcoholism. The boys were taken in by their bachelor uncle and spinster aunt—their father’s siblings. In 1925, Patrick died at age 16 after suffering a long illness from heart trouble. Joseph, raised by his aunt and uncle, attended college and law school and served in World War II. In 1952 he was elected Muskingum County prosecutor. He never married, and took care of his aunt and uncle in their advanced ages. He was my second cousins, once removed.

It was never resolved. He and Gertrude divorced and he remarried.
