As you may have read on several of my other blogs, this Frederick clan is driving me mad. I have done three of these on my grandmother’s siblings! AND, I am not going back into history all that far, just the early to mid 1900’s.
Edna with my mother
Edna May Frederick
Parents: Alfred Frederick and Lucinda B. Orr Frederick1
Birth: August 24, 1876, Columbiana County, Ohio2
Death: January 25, 1961, probably in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania3
Buried: William Penn Memorial Cemetery, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania4
Harry G. Zeigler, born March 1873 in Pennsylvania5
On the 1900 Pennsylvania Federal Census, Harry was a shoe clerk in Pittsburgh and he and Edna were living at 5018 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Harry and Edna had one child, a daughter, Mary A. Zeigler6, born 1903 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Edna is enumerated with Harry’s parents on the 1910 Pennsylvania Federal Census report7 and she lists herself as single. Perhaps he died between 1900-1910.
Before 1918, Edna married William Clinton Gween, born April 16, 1876 in Pennsylvania8. He was employed by Westinghouse and he and Edna lived at 838 Sheridan Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
I lose track of Edna and William in 1930.
Mary A. Zeigler, Edna’s daughter, married Robert B. Quinn, on November 4, 1925 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania9. Robert is the son of Thomas B. Quinn and Mary B. Wells Quinn10. He was born on July 7, 1898 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and died September 1971 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania11.
My mother has told me that later in life, Edna lived with Mary and Robert Quinn. I would take an educated guess that they are all buried at William Penn Cemetery.
Mary and Robert did not have any children, so perhaps there is a Quinn or Gween researcher out there that might have this branch in their family tree, too.
