Hi Bob,


I saw that you do not have a date of death for Bernice Shawhan Lail Edmonds

( b. 29 Nov, 1893). She died 29 Oct 1965 in Salem, Oregon, and was buried

in East Maplewood Cemetery in Anderson, Madison Co., IN. Also, the date of

her mothers (Effie Pearl Newsom Lail) death was 21 Mar 1951. Effie is

interred along with her husband, John Lail, in Washelli Mausoleum, Seattle.

The large family Bible that belonged to Effie is now with Winifred Lail

Arnold, still living & in her 80's. She is in Burbank, CA. I visit with

her as often as possible. Winifred is the eldest (and only surviving)

daughter of Verne Lail, son of Effie and John Lail.

More for that family is: Ethel Winifred McKeown, wife of Verne Lail, was b.

13 May 1891 in Canada. She d. in 1939 of breast cancer. She and Verne were

married 18 Aug 1915 in Seattle, WA. Verne died in 1936 of uremic poisoning,

the ultimate result of a fall from the roof of the family home. Their

daughter Winifred was b. 21 Jun 1916; their daughter Marian was b. 12 Oct

1917; and their daughter Bernice Gladys was b. 7 Jan 1919.

Happy Hunting!

Dear Bob Francis,

Greetings!

I found your research on Ancestry.com and can give you some information.

First, let me tell you that I am Edie Gale Hays, a descendant of George

Campbell Hays, Jr and Mary Jane Wise though their son, George Edgar Hays

who married Fannie Jessie Ogle.

Marjorie Nell Downing / Mrs. Voris Norton used the name "Baby Nell" as a

child, made it less childish later by reversing the accent to the first

syllable in "Bebenel", and didn't officially take the name Marjorie Nell

until she was in college (or later?). My grandmother, Edith Myers (Mrs

William Ogle Hays) attended college with Bebenel Bebenel's tombstone in

the Barkley Cemetery, New London, Ralls Co., MO, and has "Bebenel" engraved

below her name and dates.

If you'd like, I can try for a digital photo of hers and other Hays

tombstones in a couple of weeks when I drive through there.  (I can

NOT find the photos I took about five years ago...)

My father, Howard Hays,
