In Reply to: McMahon Family (some names unknown) by Sonja Bittner of 1914

gertrude would have put her mothers maiden name and her fathers name on her marriage license app if she knew them. have u searched for it. wont be online, but may be on film, or u may have to contact courthouse. search www.fultonhistory.com and u will see that "Wood-McMahon.
Miss Gertrude McMahon and Leslie A. Wood of Philadelphia were married July 21 by the Rev. Karl Schwartz, rector of the Church of the Saviour."(1917)i have, from www.newspaperarchive.com, her engagement picture if u want it (aurina at frontiernet dot net). have u sent for her soc sec app?

1900 clara, born aug 1888, and thomas b dec 1895 are in the orphan asylum-most of the kids in the asylum arent true orphans-just kids who need to be someplace cuz the parents need some help-my grandfather was there when his father abandoned the family; my grandmother pd the orphanage so the kids couldnt be adopted out.gertrude b april 1892listed as a servant in the doan household, oswego, but she is only 8, so-? her mother, margaret,b march 1866, is working at the orphan asylum, wouldnt be surpised if gertrude and john both there. margaret says she has had 4 kids and 3 are alive, but that appears to be wrong.

here is a possible for clara-get her marriage license app 12/10/1912
