This is a testament to “always go back and look again” for family records.Â From the WA Digital Archives long ago I had found the Social Security Death Index for my mom’s step-mother Lillian Vera Epstein Moline.
Just on a whim, I looked at Ancestry.com again this last week and found her birth information which also included her parent’s names and ages. Additionally, I found where her parents were born (Russia).Â Going by that new information, I’m now looking at the MN 1905 special census, the 1910 Federal Census as well as the 1920 census.
I’m pretty sure that Grandma “Eppie” also had a brother, but at this point I can’t remember his name. I think we do have some pictures of him though, so maybe I’ll have to dig them out and check them for names.
As you can see from the Ancestry.com record Eppie was born in Minneapolis, MN; she was a registered nurse in the State of Washington and worked for many years at Swedish hospital.Â Grandma died in 1975 in Everett, WA which was also the home of her oldest step-daughter Eleanor Jeane Moline Davis.
