Dear Members,

I am John Cole and am doing a geneaology of my family. Ihad two great aunts, LEONA C. DONALDSON, deceased 1961, and EDITH MAORA HEISMAN, deceased about that time. Do you have any death, marriage or other records to help me? Thus far,
I have been unable to find them in the ONEIDA CO> records. Both died in Rhinelander.

I would appreciate any assistance you could give me.

Hi John,

If you have a month and year of death, I could peruse the microfilm of the Rhinelander Daily News for that month. I am currently doing research on historical essays for this area where I grew up and will be making a trip there in the coming month.

Dear John,

Hope you get this message because it's been quite awhile since you posted your query about Leona and Edith, your g-aunts. Edith Maora Cole was my GG-aunt through her first marriage to my GG-uncle Henry Merriman Stone. I have a photo of them taken by my grandfather in 1904 - in Denver where they lived. I can also give you additional info on her up to the time of her second marriage to John Heisman.
