I am doing research on Margery Latimer, a local Wisconsin author. Her father was Clark W Latimer and her mother was Laurie Bodine Latimer. You have her listed here as Margerie Latimer.
My research mentions a sister, Rachel Latimer. Can you help me with this? She would probably have been born in Columbia county Wi, too unless she was Clarks child and not Laurie's.
Margery Married the author Jean Toomer in 1931 , and died in childbirth in 1932. This was in Chicago. She is buried in Portage Wisconsin. The child Margery Latimer Toomer lived, and is still alive, I believe, and Edits works by Toomer and other scholarly work.
