I am looking for more information on Gertrude van Alstine. I know she married a Hammond, but I don't know his first name. She died young, at age 19 or 20, on 3 Feb 1902 in Reed City.

Thanks. I had found this as well. It's weird that she shows up as married before 1900, yet there she is in the 1900 census living with her parents.

WHERE did you find this information ??

"It's weird that she shows up as married before 1900"

In 1900 Gertrude is listed as "single"; so she married between 1900 & 1902. She died in 1902.

This shows the marriage date for Gertie as 1896, yet the 1900 census shows her as living with her parents and marital status as single.

By 1900 Gert & Lucius may have "seperated" or got a quickie divorce. TOO young to be married???!!

Lucius may have died suddenly or abandoned Gertrude..
