Matilee "Mattie" Botkin was a Piano teacher who taught lesson's from their home in the 1920s and 30s and perhaps even longer.

She was married 2 times.
1st to Wilbur Newton Vass (a US mail carrier) on Mar 5, 1905 in Vernon, Missouri and the couple had one daughter named Virginia, born in 1907. They divorced shortly after the 1910 Census of Walker, Vernon, Missouri.

She then married Charles William Botkin (of Pendleton County, WV) who was a resident of Los Angeles, CA. Charlie was a foreman at Union Oil Refinery. (Charles and Matilee's original spouses were brother and sister. Charles' 1st wife Bessie Vass was a sister to Matilee's 1st husband Wilbur Vass.)

Charles and Matilee raised Virginia and MAY have changed her last name to Botkin as she appears in the 1920 census of Los Angeles Assembly 71. Charles died in 1945 and his small obit mentioned a wife and daughter but didn't give their names.

Matilee died in 1981 at the age of 98. Her daughter, Virginia married Ralph Arnold Gray and died in 1969.
