Mable was one of 2 daughters of Martha E Worth and Harry Worth. It is unknown if this couple ever married. According to family sources, they did not. The family story is that Martha had her children out of wedlock and moved away, not having kept in touch with family.
Wife of Warren Louks Gaylord
1850 Census; she's 5 yrs old, Walnut, Pickaway, Ohio
1870 Census; she's 27, Seward, Kendall, Illinois; (married?) to Hosea Ferryman, with step-son Burt P Ferryman. Don't think they ever married, but probably just lived together, but the record lists them as married.
1880 Census; she's 37, Buckingham, Kankakee, Illinois; living with Harry Worth and has children; Minny and Harry Jr.
1900 Census; she's 56, living back in Atlantic, Cass, Iowa
with more children, Harry, Mable and Le Roy. The record shows;
Mother: number of living children: 4
Mother: How many children: 8
1910 Census; she's 66, still living in Atlantic Ward 3, Cass, Iowa with (it says grandson) Guy Ferryman only.
1920 Census; she's 76, still living in her home town of Atlantic, Cass, Iowa with grandkids Winnifred and her husband Guy Ferryman and daughter Helen Ferryman. I tend to think that Winnifred married her step-brother, but what do I know? Since I can't find any marriage records, this is what I'm going with. If you find a marriage record, please let me know.
