States: Ohio: Mahoning
I am searching for info on Mrs. W.A. Harris of Youngstown, Ohio. She is listed as a sister of Mary Ellen Frame (Birchall) in an obituary in Minnesota from 1928. My Great Aunt Mary Ellen only had one sister, so her maiden name would have been Eliza (Lila) Birchall, but she may have used the surname Sutherland from her 1st marriage in Nova Scotia, Canada. Lila was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1876 and was a Nurse in, I believe, Chicago before or during WW1. She married Major Evert Sutherland (who invented the gun-sight for the Ross rifle used in WW1). They had a daughter Lilas.
Lila Harris had six children with W.A. Harris the last one born in 1920. They were living in Youngstown in the 20s & 30s. Any connections to anyone??? Need confirmation of data and dates. Any help appreciated.
