Telling my family's stories
An obituary that ran for Ellen (Golden) Moorehead in the Galena Gazette, July 10, 1939. The surname of her mother, Margaret Black (daughter of Daniel Black), is misspelled. According to her death certificate, she died of heart failure. My great-aunt remembers that she had a hunched back, as well, which may have been related to a variety of other health problems.
Cora Ritenour, listed here as living in Savanna, was my great-grandmother.
