Re: Stella Ratican Ardis, where buried?

In Reply to: Re: Stella Ratican Ardis, where buried? by Judy Artley of 1902

As always I appreciate the time and effort. I don't think this is Stella because there is a newspaper report in 1904?1906? I will have to look it up, saying she died and was buried from her (half) sister Kate Anderson's home in Fort Worth, although the death report was from Lillian (near Burleson/Mansfield).

There had been an earlier report of her marriage to Ardis in Oak Cliff. He was an actor by heart (and later a professional) but the little marriage report said he was a conductor on the Interurban which ran between FW and Dallas.

We did find a birth certificate for the baby a few counties over, but this burial almost had to be in Tarrant, don't you think? If she was "buried from the home of" someone who lived in Tarrant.

I just can't believe these city folks didn't record this somewhere, under her maiden name or the newly acquired Ardis name.

Again, thanks for the time you put in on this.
