Looking for Florabel Engles, mystery daughter
Posted by: Barbara Ragucci (ID *****7544) Date: August 10, 2006 at 08:30:36

I am trying to find information on Mrs. Florabel Engles (unsure of spelling). I know almost nothing about her other than that she is mentioned as a sister of two brothers, Cecil Wimer in his 1979 obituary and she is living in Dayton, Baxter Wimer in his 1984 obituary, still living in Dayton. Benjamin Wimer, another brother's obit in 1985 mentions being preceded in death by a sister Edna, don't know if that might be her. I have not found her in any census. I don't know when she was born, the last known child, a brother Fredrick was born in a 1911 in Ashtabula County. The family split up sometiime after that, with some children going with the father Cyrus Wimer. One son went with the mother, Edna Viola Wimer (shown in the 1920 census, no Florabel with her) other children went to other places. I'm not even sure if they are both her parents or not. Edna married Edwin Knox in 1917. Cyrus was also remarried by the 1930 census, but had moved to Texas, I can't find him in 1920, so I don't know when he remarried. Florabel isn't mentioned in Cyrus's obit in 1958, but the other children are. I don't even know her husband's name, so I can't search for her through him. I'm stumped, any ideas?
