Where is Mary Maxine OSWALD?
Posted by: Bill Lee (ID *****3963) Date: July 13, 2007 at 14:36:24
  of 917

Mary Maxine OSWALD was born 8 Jul 1915 in Concordia, Cloud County, KS to William Angelow OSWALD (1895-1943) and Maude LEE (1898-19??). She had a sister, Edna Marie OSWALD (1916-1918) and several half-siblings that Iím sure she never even knew about, including myself. Her mother and father were divorced 29 Sep 1917 in Minneapolis MN, and she was raised for some period of time by her grandmother, Mary Rosetta (THOMAS)(LEE)(ELSE) (1874-1924), and her step-grandfather, Dr. David William ELSE, Jr. (1877-1940), in Concordia KS. Her grandmotherís (Mary Rosetta ELSE) obituary listed two married daughters, Mrs. John DONOHUE of Chicago and Mrs. Charles DECKER of New York City. One of these is no doubt Mary Maxineís mother, and she would have probably been with her mother after her grandmotherís death. If still living, Mary Maxine would have just turned 92 years of age, and if so, I would love to meet my half-sister.
