If you research the Cary family of Cedar Grove, Carroll Co. TN, do you know when and where Alma D. Cary was born? Do you know what her middle name is?

(See below obit of mother of Alma D. Cary)

Alma was the daughter of John Cary and Sarah (Jordan) Cary of Cedar Grove community. Alma D. Cary married Millard Dunkle 21 Dec 1919, license obtained Henderson Co. TN. Alma is listed as Mrs. M.F. Dunkle of Kansas in the obit on her mother.

Millard Filmore "Phil" Dunkle and Alma D. Cary had 4 children: Mildred, Dorothy, Charles and Margaret. Husband Phil was correctional officer at Leavenworth Federal Prison, Leavenworth, KS. Millard and Alma later divorced.

Thank you for your help. Linda, Yorba Linda, CA
