I am looking for information on my great-grandparents. John M Followell and Emma Retta (possibly Loretta) Marshall. Known to have lived in Mattoon, ILL.
John and Emma Followell had at least 7 children; Gertrude Ethel, Leonard Mason, Herman Edward, Essie Mae (born 1902), Ida Marie (born 1904), Nell Alberta (born 1906), And Helen Elizabeth (born 1909). I am looking for the ancestors and descendants of John M and Emma R Marshall Followell. I am the grand daughter of Helen Elizabeth.
Emma had a brother Henry Marshall. Emma, her brother Henry and then ex-husband John M Followell all eventually moved to California where they died. Emmais listed as Emma Loretta Pickett on her death certificate. This would have given her the known names of Emma Retta (Loretta) Marshall Followell Pickett.
