Seeking more information on the family of Della McDonald and her descendants. For an outline of what I now have, see below. Specific questions include the following:

1.Who were the parents of her first husband (and father of her children) John Anderson (1866-mid 1920s)?

2.Lulu Finch apparently had a child, Robert Finch, before she married John Russell Anderson. What is the name of Robert's father? Where they married?

3.Did William Anderson (son of John Anderson and Della McDonald), b. abt. 1907 in PA ever marry and have children? IF so, who, when and where? When and where did he die?

4.Did Charles Anderson (son of John Anderson and Della McDonald), b. abt. 1904 in PA ever marry and have children? IF so, who, when and where? When and where did he die?

5.What happened to the two children (Mary and James W.) of James Anderson (son of John and Della) and his wife, Emma?

6.Ica Anderson is supposed to have married Floyd Antil (son of Ward) and John Smith?Who where the parents of these two men? In particular, how do Floyd (and Ward) relate to the other Antil/Antills in Southwestern PA?

Willing to share information.
