Children of Ida Dillon and Charles Oswald Whaley

Research Notes:

     According to the 1900 census, Ida (Dillon) Whaley had a total of 12 children, 5 of whom were still living. The 5 were listed with the family on that census. Six others are accounted for from birth and/or death records. So there should be one additional child for this family who would have been born and died before the 1900 census.

Since Ida seemed to give birth about every year or two, the most likely date range for the missing child is the gap from 1892 to 1897. However, there are a couple of smaller gaps in 1886, 1891, and 1899-1900 that could also be possibilities.

Anyone with additional information about this family, please contact me!
