Delbert Thomas Findley b. 15 Oct 1884-5, Bourbon Co. KS, d. 15 Sep 1966 Johnson Co. KS.
Delbert was a son of Thomas Findley and Belle as shown below in the 1900 KS Census:

1900 KS Census - Freedom, Bourbon, Kansas 19 Jun. ED 42
Findley, Thomas Aug 1856 43, marr. 24yr AR MD MD
Belle wife Jul 1857,42 marr. 24yr, KS VT VT 8 ch 8 living
Clarence son Apr 1879 21 single KS AR KS Laborer
Royal S son Jul 1881 18 KS AR KS
Delbert son Oct 1884 15 KS AR KS
Kate G dau Dec 1886 13 KS AR KS
Frank son Jul 1889 10 KS AR KS
Opal dau Jun 1894 5 KS AR KS
Myrtle dau Jul 1896 3 KS AR KS
Winship, John boarder Jan 1882 18 KS NY MO
--------------------------------
I find that he married 1st Ethel May Ryckman Feb 1905 in Bourbon Co. KS. I think Ethel died shortly after the 1910 KS census.

In 1915, Delbert and a son George are living in the household with Rosa McDonald, 1915 Ottawa, Franklin Co., Census. (Rosa/Rosie B. Kirkland married 1st Fred McDonald 22 Oct 1897 Franklin Co. KS and Fred died in a home fire in Franklin Co. KS 1914).

In 1918 Delbert is living in Streator, Lasalle Co., IL, nearest relative is Rosie Findley (WW1 Draft Card Registration).
1920 Census, Delbert is in Kansas City, Jackson Co., MO and is a widower.

My interest is the possible 2nd wife, Rosa/Rosie. I find that a Rosie Belle Findley F W d. 3 Nov 1918 Streator, La Salle Co. IL; Filed 5 Nov 1918. It is quite possible she died in the flu epidemic of 1918.


From obit:
Findley, Mary Belle (Stuckey) born 3/31/1910 at Spring Hill, KS and died 2/14/2006 at Olathe, KS
Parents: Louis Roscoe and Maud I. Rhinehart Stuckey
Spouse(s): Delbert "Bert" Thomas Findley (m. 10 Nov 1929, he d. 1966).

My interest is the possible 2nd wife, Rosa/Rosie. I find that a Rosie Belle Findley F W d. 3 Nov 1918 Streator, La Salle Co. IL; Filed 5 Nov 1918. It is quite possible she died in the flu epidemic of 1918. Hoping that someone can confirm this connection with the Findley Family.
Thanks for any help............. Marysue marysueeulitz@prodigy.net
