52 Ancestors - Emma Doyle

Emma Doyle Lengauer Leathers was my paternal grandfather Gust Doyle's older sister.  Their parents were William and Tressa Rose (Froman) Doyle. 

1886 December 25
Emma was born in Stoneboro, Mercer County, Pennsylvania.  She was the first child in the family.

1888 November 17
Sibling Gust Doyle was born in Stoneboro, Pennsylvania.

1891 December 9
Sibling Hazel Doyle was born in Stoneboro, Pennsylvania.

1905 July 5
Emma married John Lengauer, Jr., in Franklin, Venango County, Pennsylvania, by M. A. Henderson.  Hazel and John were both 21 years old and both lived in Stoneboro.  He worked as a miner. 

1905 November 22
Madelyn Lengauer was born.

1907 July 3
Evelyn Lengauer was born.

1910 April
This 1910 U. S. Census shows Emma and both daughters living in the home of her parents in Stoneboro.  She was recorded as 23 years old, a widow, having been married 5 years.  Madelyn was 4, Evelyn was 2.  Family sources indicate that John died in a mining accident but those sources do not include a date of death or burial location.

1913 June 26
Emma Doyle Lengauer married Chauncey E. Leathers in Erie, Erie County, Pennsylvania.  Both were 26 and both lived in Stoneboro.  Chauncey was a railroad conductor.

1920 January
The 1920 U.S. Census recorded Emma and Chauncey living in Stoneboro, six houses away from her parents.  Chauncey was recorded as 34 years old, Emma as 33, Madeline as 14, and Evelyn as 12.  He was still a conductor with the railroad.

1930 April
The 1930 U.S. Census recorded Emma and Chauncey living on Maple Street in Stoneboro, Pennsylvania.  Neither daughter was recorded as living with them in April, 1930.  Chauncey was a conductor for a steam rail road.

1930 March 27
Emma's mother, Tressa Rose (Froman) Doyle died.

The 1940 U.S. census recorded Emma and Edward living on Lake Street in Stoneboro, Pennsylvania.  Both were 53 years old and Edward was still a conductor with the railroad.  In all previous records Edward had been recorded as Chauncey E. or Chauncey Edward.  Perhaps he was usually called Edward or perhaps the name Chauncey went out of fashion.  Also living with Emma and Chauncey was Emma's widowed father, William Doyle, age 77.

1956 June 2
Emma died.  She was buried two days later at Oak Hill Cemetery in Sandy Lake Township, Mercer County, Pennsylvania.

Because my father's mother passed away in 1913 when he was just over a month old, he was cared for by family members.  During his toddler years he spent time with his paternal grandmother and his aunts, Emma and Hazel.  He was close to both of them as a child so it surprises me that there are no photographs of Aunt Emma.  I'm sure we visited as a family when I was a child but the visits were rare enough (or my childhood memory dim enough) that I don't remember her.

Yet to Do
  • Find death year for John Lengauer, Jr.  If it's true he died in a mining accident it's possible there would have been a newspaper article about the accident or a government accident report.  The 1910 Census indicates that Emma was a widow and had been married 5 years.  Since she married in 1905, I don't know if that suggests that John died in 1910 or that even though she's a widow, Emma considers herself still married.  At any rate, John would have died no earlier than mid-1906 since Evelyn was born in July 1907. 
  • Find  Chauncey Edward Leathers death date and a death certificate, if possible.
  • Find a death certificate Emma Doyle Lengauer Leathers.

T is for Timelines - Family History Through the Alphabet

I think of timelines as one of those essential tools to help find gaps in information about an ancestor; to help discover possible inconsistencies; and to help place an ancestor in his environmental setting at any particular time.  Timelines may be especially useful when trying to figure out where to turn next to find more  information about an ancestor.  I think they are a concise way to see an overview of an ancestor's life.

I include every event I learn about an ancestor and note the date (of course!) and geographic location where the event took place.  I think it's important to include a note in the timeline after each entry giving abbreviated source details about where you found the information.  (You'll have recorded a full citation elsewhere, such as in your genealogy software program.)

Sometimes dates and ages are calculated from a census, other times the record gives the age and date.  Here are some of the things I include in my timelines.  Possible sources are in parentheses.
  • Birth dates and ages of the focus ancestor and every member of his/her family (civil record, church record, newspaper announcement, obituary, gravestone, death record, interment record)
  • Baptism, christening, confirmation  (church records, possibly newspaper announcements)
  • Immigration information (passenger lists)
  • Naturalization (county or federal government records)
  • Marriage (government or church documents, calculated from some census records, newspaper announcements)
  • Divorce (government documents, vital statistics in some newspapers)
  • Property purchases and sales (county records)
  • Military service (government documents, newspaper articles)
  • Moves/relocations (census records, city/county directories, newspaper articles)
  • Wills (county records, newspaper announcements)
  • Deaths of individual and all family members (government records, church records, grave markers, obituaries, interment records)

I think of timelines as working tools, subject to change as I learn more information about my ancestor.  If a birth year is calculated from a census record, I may learn more accurate information from some other source, and then I change it and make an additional note about where I found the information.

Timelines sometimes help me sort out information.
  • Ages:  Is the mother old enough to have a child, too old to have a child?  Are the children spaced at least 9 months apart?  Is there a wide age gap (3 or more years) between siblings?  Perhaps a child was stillborn or died without being recorded in a census.
  • Immigration:  If an ancestor is located in a distant city two days after his ship arrived in the U.S., perhaps they are two different people. 
  • Moves:  If the ancestor is in different locations in consecutive census records, it can narrow down the date he moved to at least 10 years.  Additional research (city/county directories, state census reports, property records) may help narrow the move even further.
  • Local and world events:  I include these if I suspect my ancestor immigrated (from any location to another) because of problems in his homeland or previous location.  Knowing that the community scorned people from his homeland would help me understand a move to a new community.  War may be another reason for an ancestor to move.

I've noticed that many people like to make horizontal timelines, probably because we think of time as horizontally linear (at least I do).  I find a vertical timeline easier to use when I know I'm going to be adding information.  Using a computer I can insert dates and just move the information below it down.

Your genealogy software program may be helpful to you.  If you've included as much information as you know about an ancestor you may be able to use it to begin a timeline.  By clicking on an ancestor's page in RootsMagic, it shows me the date of every event I've added for that person.  That will be a good basis for an even more extended timeline (or incentive to add all the information to the software program). 

For more information about timelines
  • Do a google image search with the words "timeline family history" and see how others have created timelines.
  • Look at FamilySearch's US Timelines - Creation and Use with Families or Family Tree Magazine's  Create a Personal Timeline where you can read more suggestions and ideas about timelines.
  • For those researching in the United Kingdom, the BBC Timeline Tool gives a nice historic overview of national and local events that may help you understand more about your ancestor's situation and the reason for some of his/her decisions.
I've posted three timeslines:  Elvira Bartley Gerner - Her Years from Birth to Burial, Timeline for Harry Hepler, and Every Scrap of Evidence - Timeline for Henry Meinzen.  They are not perfect timelines but they helped at the time I was researching the individual.

Timeline for Harry Hepler

This is an effort to compile in one place all the information available to me at this time for Harry H. Hepler, husband of Ida Gerner. I'd like to reunite Harry, Ida, and daughter Lucille, at least on paper, to complete their little family circle.

Heplar [sic], Jr., of Huntsville, Ala.; daughters Mrs. Harold Kittrell of Columbus; Mrs. Lloyd Jordan of Columbus; Mrs. Bernice Savage of Cleveland; Mrs. Ralph Bibler of Junction City; Mrs. James Larkin of Nashville; and Mrs. Wallace Cly of Lancaster. Interment in St. Mary Cemetery, Lancaster. (Lancaster Eagle-Gazette obituary).

I have requested a copy of Harry's and Rosanna's marriage certificate from Kenton County, Kentucky. Knowing that Harry had been previously married may give some credence to the possibility that this Harry Hepler is Ida Gerner's husband/widow.

I hope that someone who is a descendant of Harry Hepler will contact me after reading this blog post.

Every Scrap of Evidence

I'm searching for Henry Carl Meinzen's city of birth and his parents' names. Family "sources" indicate that his father's name was Carl and that at the time of Henry's death, he had a brother named Fred living in Germany.

When approaching a brick wall, the genealogy books I've read suggest reviewing every document and piece of paper, just on the chance some bit of evidence has been overlooked. So that's what I've done. And here's what I've found.

Henry's Timeline
