One of my maternal grandmother’s sisters. My great Aunt. I found a portrait of her while I was cleaning out a box of papers. Married Morey Caven. I’m still trying to find more information.
My grandfather Judd Dewitt Van Sickle had 6 siblings. His sister Jessie Van Sickle was the only one to reach young adulthood.
I’ve seen the siblings’ markers surrounding the parents’ graves in Durand, Illinois cemetery.
Jessie was Born in 1878, and she passed on May 27,1904. My cousin John said she was studying to be an opera singer. There are notes that say their mother, my Great Grandmother, Lucy Maria Judd passed from “la grippe”(influenza)
Married 28 January 1904. Durand, Illinois. My great Aunt May B. Rowley (b.1883-d.1972) and her husband Ralph Alson Potter (b. 1882-d.1971). My grandmother Charlotte’s sister.
I visited Uncle Ralph and Aunt May’s home in Durand when I was a kid. I remember I didn’t understand the words on a plaque over his garage- Dun Workin’ .
They had one son Melburn Clark Potter. b.1906-d. 1940
