Mary Fincher/Depew - Ohio/Illinois/Michigan

Classification: Query
Surnames: Fincher, Depew
Looking for information surrounding Mary Fincher, Born Mary Isabell DePew abt. 1895 to Abraham and Nettie Depew of Ohio and Indiana respectively. She wed Edward in about 1911, and had several children in the following years; Abraham, Edward, Anita, Nettie, Roy and Earl. (perhaps Anita and Nettie are one in the same?)

The Fincher children of Mary and her Husband Edward appear in the 1920 Census with their parents in Freedom, OH. The Fincher children that were underage in 1930, appear in the census at the Wood County Children's Home.

Rumor has it, one of the Finchers, presumably her spouse or one of the children killed Mary, causing the children to become wards of the state. Most of the children then have no records beyond 1930.

The presumption is that something occurred between the years of 1921 and 1930, as that was when the youngest of the family was born.

Any information you can share would be appreciated. Even if it relates to their (her) children and how they came to be in the Children's Home, or perhaps why son Albert died circa 1931, after appearing in the 1930 census as an inmate in "jail".

Thanks!
