Additional Information

William F. Braden:

Cause of Death: cardiac infaration

Buried: 03 Jan 1952, Beach City Cemetery, Beach, Golden Valley, ND

Notes:

per death certificate William died of the 5th episode of cardiac infaration.

Winifred Ellen Pierce:

Buried: 03 Jan 1943, Beach, Golden Valley, North Dakota 14

Notes:

Per death certificate, Winnie had lived in Beach for 14 years. She died of Uremia. She entered the hospital on Dec. 13, 1942. Contributing causes of death were diabetes mellitus, hypertensive cardiovascular renal disease secondary to the diabetes. I think that means the Diabetes caused the kidney trouble.

Per Yvonne Scheller Email 5 Jan 2008:
"My Uncles (Winnie's boys) were all in the service during WW
II and Will and Winnie went with our family to work on the Naval Air Station
in Idaho. Winnie got very ill and Will took back to Beach. She passed away
Dec. 28 or 29th of 1942. All the boys came home from war for the funeral."

A picture postcard sent from Martha Greely (b.1897)(daughter of Sewell Greely), sent to Winnie about 1915: Photo - young man and woman in a one horse carriage
"Dear Cousin: Well how are you folks. We are all well and hope you are all the same. Here is a picture of Myron Ames and myself. It isn't a good picture of either of us. Does Jessie Irene walk yet? I would like very much to see you all. Merle walks and talks too. Well by,by. ans soon. Your loving cousin, Martha"
Martha married Myron Ames abt 1915. The Merle referred to is probably Martha's little brother Merle abt a year old.
