I am looking on information on a Max Dieffenbacher who married a Hester Chockley. Hester was born in 1879 near McDonough Co Ill. She moves with her mother to Kansas City MO. I cannot find her in the 1900 census. In the 1910 census she is lliving with her mother and stepfather in Kansas City. The census lists her as married with no children.
By the 1920 census she is listed as widowedand is still living in Kansa City with her stepfather, by now her mother has died. In her father's obituary in 1922 Hester is listed as the widow of Max Dieffenbacher. Now there is a Max Dieffenbacher in the 1880 census son of Joseph and Estella in Fulton County Illinois. I think this might be the MAx I am searching for. Any of you Dieffenbacher researchers know about this family? Lynn
