Sorry Linda:
I didn't have any dates to work with to find a marriage or death to look at in the papers. I did find in the old city directories that in 1924 living with Raymond Easly a 7 year old Edna. That was the only year they recorded names of children. By 1930 there was still three other people living with him so one was probably Edna. By 1940 Raymond's wife Mildred was living by herself. If Raymond was Edna's uncle then wouldn't Mildred be Letha's sister? Anyway, Raymond Stanley Easley died Dec. 21, 1948 at the age of 62 from a book called "The Prairie Sleeps" but the microfilm of the paper in the library only goes up to 1947. A copy of that obit might list married names of the girls. I will look more another time.
