**Picture of Madge in her jacket has the WRONG DATE on it. I personally took the photo and added the date with the new iphone app but put the wrong date on it. She died in 1988. Sorry for any confusion! Carole

Madge Delores GRAVES was the daughter of Burleigh Graves and Artena Belle ASHCRAFT Graves. She had a baby brother born prematurely and did not survive.

Madge married her sweetheart - Clarence Eugene Widdifield on December 8, 1922 in Paulding, Paulding County, Ohio.

Madge GRAVES and Clarence Eugene Widdifield were the parents of 4 children:
1 - Billy Gene born 1923 and died 1925

In 1965, after the death of her husband -Clarence, Madge started a whole new life. She learned to drive a car and also was employed as a home medical stenographer until she retired.
