Additional Information

Matilda White:

Notes:

1900 census shows Matilda living with her parents and working as a "day domestic". She has been divorced, her name is Matilda Reitz and her son, Edward Reitz is living with her. She reports having born 4 children, 3 of whom are still living.


On the 1910 Census Matilda says she has been married to present husband 2 years. She's had 6 children, only 3 are still living. Only one child is with her.

From P Marek Email 9 Apr 2007: Granny never talked about her family until her
end but she mentioned that "Mamma" (Matilda White) had a couple of sets of
twins that died young. We didn't know if any of that was true.

    Pat also believes that Matilda was first married to a Reitz and had a son named Edward, but was back with his parents by 1900. However, this info is not conclusive.

    Besides her
    half-sister Lucille (a really fun lady), there was an "Uncle Vade". I am
    sure she said he was a half-brother as well. So, I think Matilda's first
    marriage was to a Reitz as Uncle Vade was Nevada Reitz.
