Old Thread, but I have new info.
Just received Delia's death certificate from Los Angeles County, CA. Tried to obtain other family members' too, but have not found the right counties for them yet/records aren't being found (including Myrtella, which the CA index says she died in 1924 in LA Co., but received a no record found letter from LA)
Delia's middle name was spelt "Emmaline" in her record.
Fathers Surname: Unknown
Mothers Surname: Atwood
Informant: H M Buchannan
Informant's address 2036 W 28th St, Los Angeles, LA Co., CA
(Delia lived/died at same address, d. 14 Jan 1913, and is listed there in 1911 and 1912 city directories).
Delia was living in 1900 in riverside (widow) w/ son-in law Johnston & grandchildren (dau. Ida d. before her). Between 1900-1908 (and through 1910 census) she appears to have returned to Omaha, Nebraska for a time; living as a lodger in 1910 census, back in West 28th St., LA, CA by 1911.
Anyone know of any ATWOOD (or CHILDS) connections, or new info, on the Bridges family or Delia? (even any more on Buchanan?) H M Buchanan, the informant appears to be Myrtle D Johnston's (Delia's grandau. through Ida) husband Harris M Buchanan.
Any info or thoughts much appreciated, she is still my brick wall!
(on another note, obtained marriage record copy for G W bridges in 1852 from Wisconsin hist. society, and the actual record says Caroline D CHILDS, just like the index)- but no parents names)
There's some connection with the CHILDS family- to the Bridges and.or Delia- but I can't figure it out. 1870 There is a Marietta Childs living with Delia and G W Bridges, and in 1930 Myrtle Johnston Buchanan (informant's wife and Delia's grandau.) has a Cordelia L. Childs (aunt to head of house Harris M Buchanan) age 86 living with them in 1930 census in LA.
