Kenneth Chester ROSLYN - 1907 Nebraska
Posted by: Rebecca Daniel (ID *****5812) Date: March 07, 2011 at 12:24:17

I am looking for information on Kenneth Chester ROSLYN....born 3/26/1907 possibly in Nebraska.


Mother: Edith Mae ESKEW....born 2/24/1890 in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Montana Marriage Certificate lists:
Groom: Max JORDAN - widower
Bride: Edith ESKEW ROSLYN - widow

1910 Census - 3 June 1910 - Cedar Precinct - Boone, Nebraska
Edith ROSLYN - servant living with the F. F. Tully family with a 3 year old Kenneth ROSLYN. It lists Edith as Married.

The Norfolk weekly news-journal (Norfolk, Neb.) 1900-19??, July 22, 1910

Albion News: "Mrs. Edith Roslyn, who was working in the home of F. F. Tully at Cedar Rapids, was adjudged insane last Thursday and taken to the asylum at Hastings. Some time ago she and her husband separated and since then her mind has been giving away. A few days ago she received a letter from her mother in Wyoming that her father shot at one of her brothers, and had declared he was going to kill the whole family. On the receipt of this news she became violently insane."

1920 Census - School District T - Miles City - State Industrial School - Custer, Montana

Kenneth ROSLYN - inmate - age 13

After 1920 Kenneth started going by his step-father's name JORDAN.

He and Edith JORDAN along with 2 other family members were killed in a automobile accident 15 July 1956, in Grants Pass, Josephine, Oregon. His death certificate lists Max JORDAN as his father.


Any help with this is greatly appreciated.
