(1909-1954 ) .. Lena is listed as head of household. Jessie was married and divorced before 1925 (she is listed as "D" for divorced) she never remarried as her name on the funeral marker is "Ainsworth" - the same as she appeared on the 1930 census.

Jessie does not have a headstone, just the small marker the funeral home puts on the grave site. Christian Funeral Home in Cheboygan, Cheboygan Co., Michigan handled the burial; Jessie is buried in Section M next to her brother, Dean M., who is also buried in Munro Cemetery along with his wife, Pauline HAIG Mace. Their mother is buried in front of Jessie.
