Additional Information

Tibbals G. White:

Cause of Death: flu epidemic

Buried: West Ella Cemetery, Apple River, Jo Daviess, Illinois

Notes:

Tibbals was a twin with Lizzie. Here's what Aunt Dorothy says of him. "He was a postmaster at Oskaloosa, Iowa for a long time. Tibbals and his wife, Merritt's mother and father, died of the flu when Merritt was tiny. He was raised by an aunt on the Sincox side of the family. I guess they were sort of rough. They drank and Merritt does too. When he phoned me the last times I could hardly understand him."

Per Ellen Faragher White's will: name is George Tibbals White.

Ella E. Francomb:

Buried: West Ella Cemetery, Apple River, Jo Daviess, Illinois

Notes:

1920 census shows Emma Francomb, age 57, living with Ellen and Annie White. Emma is an older sister of Ella Francomb who had married Ellen's son Tibbals in 1902. (See 1880 census, Apple River, Jo Daviess County, IL, Ancestyr p. 18 of 22.)
