Ms. Karen,
I see that you posted this some 11 years ago, so apologize for arriving so late in the game. My Great Grandmother was Ella Catherine Govereau (Spelling courtesy of a newspaper obituary, Death Bonne Terre MO 12/21/1903). Evidently she was born in St. Genevieve around 1866-67, and married my Great Grandfather William F. Mitchell. They had eight children, Harry C, Charles A, Burtha S, Mirtel M, John Lawrence (My Grandfather), Frank, Buford, and Marnie. Ella was 36 when she died, leaving my GGrandfather with eight kids (He never remarried). Family lore has it that a Doctor had lanced a lesion or boil on Ella's neck, and because the doctor didn't use sterile equipment, infection set in and she eventually died a painful death. Being the love of his life, this enraged my GGrandfather to the point where he picked up a gun and went hunting for this doctor. A family/friend/neighbor intervention ensued, and and after much coaxing, the entire family was loaded up on a train to Los Angeles, California. I would love to see your data and/or compare notes as I believe there must be a connection. Thank you! Kevin Mitchell
