I am looking for anyone that is connected to any of the following families.
My great uncle James (Jimmy) Franklin Straw married Effie Armstrong 4-7-1907 in Pratt, Kansas just before their son Merle J. Straw was born on 8-8-1907. James and Effie divorced, do not know when or where. Effie then married Charles McAllister. They are found in the 1920 Census for Minden, Montgomery County. New York. Have never found Effie in any census or records since.
Later Effie married Hugh Smith per Merle's estate records in 1977.
Merle J. Straw died in Florida on 7-26-1977 with no next of kin. So the state of Florida had to hire a genealogical firm to look for any of his relatives, my mother was contacted because James F. Straw was my grandfather's brother.
The estate records also listed Effie's Armstrong side of the family. Mentioned was Ada B. Armstrong who married John Edgar Wonder. Mary Armstrong who married Oscar Moon
Effie Armstrong was born about 1888, Ada B. about 1876 and Mary about 1881.
I am hoping someone connected to these families might know when Effie was born and where and when she died.
Merle J. Straw was a life long Navy man and was cremated and his ashes scrattered at sea.
Please contract me, Eva
