Celia Dumars, 1710 Kansas avenue, died yesterday morning at her home. The funeral will be held Monday at 4 o'clock from Penwell's chapel. Burial in Topeka Cemetery.

(The Topeka Daily Capital, Sunday, October 13, 1918, transcribed by Jim Laird)

Celia was a single mother. She worked as a housekeeper from 1875 to 1895. By 1900 she was working in a bakery, baking bread.

Bert married Selena Gill in 1908. Mother Celia continued to live with her only son after he married. Even death could not part them for long. Bert was buried next to his mother in 1957.

*I researched the Census records and did not find that Celia was married. Bert's father is a mystery.
