Miss Ella M.[sic] Schwerdtfeger
Miss Ella Hattie Schwerdtfeger of 60 Whitman Ave. West Hartford, died Monday afternoon at her home. She was a member of the Second Church of Christ, Scientist, of Harford. She leave 3 sisters, Mrs. Clara L. Jones of Milford, Miss Alma R. Schwerdtfeger and Miss Wanda G. Schwerdtfeger of West Hartford; 4 brothers, Otto M. Schwerdtfeger Of New Hartford, Emil H. Schwerdtfeger, Alvin A. Schwerdtfeger, Jr. and Alfred L. Schwerdtfeger, all of West Hartford, and several nieces and nephews...
Did Clara remarry to a Jones? If not, then this is not your family. I will say that there is a tree on Ancestry.com that places her in this family, and has her married to Richard Frederick Graff. Hope this helps. Annie
