Thank you for replying, I actually have all that information, I know she was in Owlshaed Maine up till 1930, that's when I lose the trail. I don't even know if Stella (as she was usually called) and Jimmie stayed married.

Hi melssugarplum - this is why it is a good idea to include the information you already have in your query. Otherwise posters who wish to help you will redo the work you have already done.

Be specific such as I have the information from for her two marriages and her birth. I have found her on XYZ year/s on XYZ census.

Be specific on what you are looking for such as:
I am looking for 1)specific date of death 2)what happened to children (insert names) after her death, etc.

I know what happened to children, my mother and her siblings were put into an orphanage, what I don't know is ANYTHING else...did she stay married to my grandfather Jimmie, when/where did she live/die, if she divorced Jimmie..when? etc... I have nothing and have been doing research since the 80's. I found her sister Madeline, and we have found all the siblings, only 1 of which is living anymore. I also have no info about my grandfather., Jimmie Johnson past 1930 census
