Sadly, a set of twin boys died right after their birth.
Two siblings, Anna Helen and Charles Russell, would live to adulthood.

Following the death of their mother in 1906 she and her two siblings were sent to live in other households while their father made his living as a carpenter in Pittsburgh, Allegheny, PA

Anna was boarding in Albany Co, NY
Charles was with their uncle in Clinton Co, PA
Marguerite was living with the Phillip P. Shaak family in Clinton Co, PA

Married George Lester Epler

12 Apr 1920 Reading, Berks, PA
Mother of two known children;
2 daughters
1923 Catherine S.
1932 Elenore

After locating a marriage record for Marguerite and George it is unclear if she was adopted by Phillip and Ella Shaak. She gives her maiden name as Shaak.

Daughter Catherine enlisted in the Women's Army Corp on 09 Jul 1943. It appears that she never married.
