  1. There is a family tree at which shows she had a son named Lyman C. (b. April 28, 1896) who married Ora Ina Love in 10 Sep 1921.

    They are Find A Grave Memorial# 28301369. Lyman was a coal miner. They had one daughter that appears to have never married (Find A Grave Memorial# 19328413)

    1. Nellie Mae Gordons's headstone says Mother on it?? Perhaps she was married at some time and took back her maiden name??

  2. I left a message with the owner of the find a grave Memorial.
