York Family in Crawford County
Posted by: Johanna Hill (ID *****6443) Date: March 31, 2007 at 20:20:45

I am looking for information on Goldie York Russel, born approx 1896. Her son, Max York is my husband's grandfather. I know from looking at the 1900, 1910 and 1920 census that she was born approximately 1896, although I do not know her parents names. She was raised by her aunt, Emma C. York, who later married a man by the name Ira Love. Emma's parents were William R York and Amelia (Milly) Garrard York.

Goldie married a Henry Russel shortly before the 1920 census, and we believe moved with her new husband, leaving Max behind with "Aunt Em" as my mother in law recalls. Max did not talk much about his childhood so don't have a lot of information to work with.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. My mother in law lost contact with her York relatives several years ago, so I have very little to work with.

Thank you!
