Hello Stan,
My great aunt, Gladys Anderson Turner, married Ross Emit Turner in 1922 in Oregon. We know his family was from Clark County, WI, namely around the Fremont/York areas. I fortunately found your post on you historical site:

Turner, Rudah (10 SEP 1898 - 4 MAR 1903)

Rudah Turner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Turner, of the town of York, Clark County, died March 4, 1903, aged 4 years, 5 months and 24 days. The cause of her death was pneumonia. The funeral was held at the M.E. Church in Loyal, Rev. Hill officiating.


The census for your county stated that the family had the following members in 1900 and 1910:
Frank F. Turner b. 1864 in Maine
Allria E. Turner b. 1862 in Maine
Children:
Roy A. b. 1886
Justice J. b. 1889 Twin
Justice I. b. 1889 Twin
Milford T. b. 1893
Ross Emit b. 1896 d. 1957 in LA
Rudah Ruar b. 1899

Since the funeral was at the Methodist Church in York, and most of my family was Methodist, I would assume that if there is still a Methodist Church there, there might be records that could help me find out what happened to the family. It looks like they almost dropped off the face of the earth!

Do you have any records that might lead me to them??

Thanks a lot!!
