Hi Lorinda,

I believe I found Eva Hansel, Jennie's sister.

You wrote: "The only siblings the family knows about are Harry and Evie, not sure of that spelling. I don't even know their ages."

I think this is your family. Eva was born: May 15, 1886 in Decatur County, Indiana

Eva married Lawrence Lough. They had a son, Sheldon Lough.
http://zabasearch.com/ could help you find Sheldon Lough.
