    Well, I went back to the Archives today, and found out that she
    didn't die (among other things). I meant to give Marie Devore's
    birthdate as abt 1889, rather than 1899; she was a year older than
    Walter. In 1920, she was still living with her parents in Meadville,
    and she had--get this--five children, all apparently children of
    Walter. I say that because although Walter wasn't there, she and her
    children all bore the Ferguson name; also, all of the children give
    their father's birthplace as FL. Here we have another mystery,
    though. There is a column to give the marital status of each
    individual (Single, Married, Divorced, or Widowed); Marie Ferguson
    has a very clear "M" in that column. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
