  • Notes 

    • [Deposition of Della Franklin; 1885 Nebraska Census] [1910 Oregon census]


      Grace apparently didn't care for her first name, and called herself Fay at the time of her marriage to Harry F. Roddy on 22 Sept 1903, in Sherwood, Oregon. She was also called "Dee" by her sibling>
      s.
      For the last few years of her husband's life they lived apart. In her old age she was cared for by various family members. Her daughter Evelyn Gordon was caring for her in the Portland, Oregon area when she died "of natural causes" (some family members have told me that she choked while trying to drink a glass of water).
      She is buried beside her husband, Harry Francis Roddy, in the Golden Gate National Cemetery.
      Though her "retroactive" birth certificate shows she was born in January, 1881, she appears on the 1880 Nebraska census as being 4 months old.
      She and her husband and first 3 children were living on 4th Street in Tillamook, Oregon, at the time of the 1910 census. Her Parents and brother, Adelbert and Aunt Dot lived next door. There
      is considerable differences in her reported age on various censuses, etc.
