Jehial Hartin and Elsie Jane Parks

Re: Jehial Hartin and Elsie Jane Parks (a correction to my previous post)

Posted: 1317878309000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Taylor, Jerram, Schmidt, Smith, Sedgewick, Sedgwick, Boomhower
First: Flora Taylor's first husband's name was "Albert Edward Jerram" from the State of New York, USA. Clara was born a Jerram(correct spelling) and later adopted her step-father's last name of Taylor. Clara had one full blood brother "Robert Edward Jerram" to my knowledge.

Second: The correct spelling of Flora's maiden name is:
"Schmidt" which was as mentioned before anglicized to "Smith".

Third: Concerning the spelling on Clara and Reginald's last name of "Sedgewick". Reginald signed his name on their marriage certificate with the second "E". Therefore it was considered the actual spelling of his name hence Clara's new legal last name. However, further investigation into Reginald's birth records shows Reginald's surname is actually legally spelt with only one "E". When their two son's were born (Thomas and George) each were given their father's legal name of "Sedgwick" with the one "E". However, unbeknown to Clara (re: the spelling of her name)her children with Orville Boomhower before their marriage were given the her legal last name of "Sedgewick" at the time.

It is a shame we can not ask any of them why they did these small strange things. It just makes tracking the ancestry lines all that more difficult. It was always assumed there was no connection between the two "Sedgewick/Sedgwick" names all because of a single letter. We are connected by our joint Grandmother Clara Elizabeth Alma (Jerram Taylor Sedgewick) Boomhower. Wow!!! What a handle LOL.

My siblings and I are very eager and interested in any information that anyone may have in regards to Clara's parents origins or even of Clara herself(my grandmother -what was she like? what did she look like? etc.). To date we know that (my great-grandmother)Flora her mother's name was "Sarah (Kaiser) Schmidt" but nothing of Flora's father.
Any help in these areas would be greatly appreciated.
