I am looking for information on my great grandmother's sister Daisy Velma Graham.
Born: abt 1914, Desloge, St Francois County, Missouri
Died: 17 January 1949, Morehouse, New Madrid County, Missouri
Parents: Isaac and Emily Graham
Sisters: Gwendolyn Rivers and Desdemona Esmeralda
She gave birth to twins Martha and Gerald Graham abt 1933-1934. She was an unwed mother. I have found confirmation that all 3 lived with her parents in the 1940 census when the twins were 6 yrs old. The twins would have been only 15-16 when she passed away; however.....I cannot locate them after 1940. I also cannot locate them prior to 1940.
Rumor in my family was that the father of the twins was a married man. He was possibly a doctor. We know Daisy died young and of cancer.....I have found her death certificate.
Stories also were that Martha died young, but not sure how young. My mom does recall Gerald visiting her grandma and is pretty sure he had children as well.
I realize the situation was probably unacceptable during the time period.... single and pregnant. Or seems to some extent she was disowned... at least by her sisters. But I would love to what happened to her children!! And if there are descendants out there.
