Chester Rollin Witham, Jerome, Idaho, Important
Posted by: Marge Thompson (ID *****0307) Date: October 23, 2002 at 16:24:50
  of 871

I am looking for a direct relative of Chester Witham, son of William W b Iowa 1891 and Nellie Gertrude Winslow b Kansas 1891. My mother, Bonnie Jeanne Dellinger was his wife when he died of TB in 1947 that he contracted in the South Pacific during his Army tour. She died last year on October 11 and her wish was to return his burial flag and discharge papers to his family. I don't know why she waited so long as his mother didn't pass until 1983 at age 92 in Portland, Oregon. I find in the 1930 Jerome, Idaho census, where both mom and Chester's family lived at the time, that he had a sister Genevieve?, 14, brother Irwin, 17 and sister Wanda, 5. I found that Irwin died in Stevens County, Washington in 1997, but I have no clue who his sisters married or if Irwin had family. If anyone can help me I'd appreciate it.
