Daniel and Ella (Richardson) daughter Bernice is also Winifred (the census just used first name on one and middle name on another) how I figured this out. The thank you card note in newspaper when Ella Gay passed away.
Also Ella (Richardson) Gay passed away later then what I prior thought. (Found her obit) its in the gallery album for Daniel under the newspapers album.
The reason I was confused is because the census shows he was a widow at a certain point. Then I come across her obit. Then found a census for her where she also losted herself as a widow. Apparently they seperated and when census came along they listed themselves as widows.
So I updated the family group sheet for Daniels family. First post in the already started Family Chart post in Daniels forum.
