    1. Yes I think so. Ruby Loretta Casteel born Jan 21 1913 in Oregon and died November 9 1926 although Find A Grave says November 11, 1926 (That is the day she was buried) She died of Tuberculosis of the lungs. Her parents were Richard from Maryland 1862 to 1928, Mother Susan (Molver) from Estherville Iowa 1880 to 1927. Sisters were Rena May 1902 to 1920, Pearl Amanda 1905 to 1965 married a Hackett and Thelma Katherine 1906 to 1926.
      By 1928 all of this family were dead and gone except for Pearl. I suspect that Tuberculosis was the cause.

  2. I think Sallysmom has found her - the last name looks like Casteel to me.

  4. I had to figure it all out but the father was 18 years older than the mother. It is sad how all of them just died so soon right after their daughter. My grandfather died of tb in 1937 so it was still a major disease 20 years later.

  5. What a sad outcome after that cheerful start. TB certainly was a dreaded part of life, especially in the cities. Even though we have the meds for it now, it is still an awful disease to go through. But at least now, it's something that people can say they survived.

  6. Happy to see this. My half sister is descended from Susan Mary Molver and I am happy to see / learn anything I can on the family. (I am descended from Susan Mary's brother Daniel.) Thank you for posting this information, this is a wonderful thing to do for people, posting the old photos with information transcribed.
