I am looking for proof that Margaret Pearl Kelly is the daughter of John Green Kelly and Margaret Elizabeth Fryer. She was born 7 Apr 1884 so missed the 1880 census and married Frederick Charles Hartcraft 7 May 1900 and is on the 1900 census with him. Died 23 Jun 1917. Any other information anyone may have regarding her or Frederick Charles Hartcraft would be appreciated.
Have you found a death record or obituary for her? From what I've looked at, I'm assuming Pearl and F C are from San Antonio, Texas?
I have seen the 1900 census for the Kelly household, have you worked on tracing the 'Mary L who was born in 1884?' From experience, I know how easy it is to take what the census records say as 'gospel'. I have been only working on this family for a few hours today, and I'm trying to find evidence of Pearl Hartcraft's death. I see death records for a child of theirs that is offered as evidence that she is his mother, perhaps, but it doesn't indicate a death date for her. I do see that F.C. died in 1917, and their children are in different households in 1920, so I assume she died or left the family.
