I am so glad to be in touch with you. Here is the connection. According to my mother, Mae was a dear friend of her father's mother. Her father's mother was named Ellen Bronaugh (maiden name). She was also called "Ella" and "Judy". Ellen was b. in Missouri in 1869 and first married Frank Emmett in 1892 in Laclede Co MO. Ellen and Frank had two sons, Robert Emmett (my grandfather) b. 1893, and Harry Emmett, b. 1894. Frank Emmett d. in 1906 in Kansas City MO and then Ellen married George T. (G.T.) Wagner. Ellen and G.T. lived at Pana and Assumption, Illinois. Ellen d. in 1926. Apparently, there was some contact between Mae and Ellen's sons, through the 1930s and 1940s, as my mother (b. 1930) remembers Mae. If you have a photo of Mae, I would sure like to have a copy. Also, we do not have any photos of Ellen (my grandfather's mother). If, by any chance, in Mae's possessions, there is a photo of a woman named "Ellen" or "Ella" or "Judy", I would also really like a copy.
Thanks so much!
