|Cathy Taylor||RE: Mrs. Earl Williams|
Maud Ethel Troop was my paternal grandmother. Since she died in 1935, I never had the opportunity to know her. My father was eleven years old when she died, and he never said very much about her or his life as a child. But I can imagine that losing your mother at such a young age would be stressful.
I have no clue where the name Margaret came from. It must have been some kind of clerical error. In speaking with a few of her other grandchildren from her first marriage, no one has ever heard of the name Margaret. It sure made it difficult to locate her death certificate!! Her birth certificate lists her name as Maud Ethel Troop.
Quin Earl Williams (my paternal grandpa) would have been her 3rd husband. HOWEVER, I believe they were never legally married. I have never located a marriage document for them (and I have searched courthouses from Michigan to Minnesota), and I have never located a divorce decree from husband #2. Such a tangled web we weave....!!!
Let me know if you need any more info. Glad to help.
Thanks again for your help updating memorials. Very much appreciated!
