The marriage record in Crawford Co: Bert L. Redmon, age 21 to Frances M. Comstock, age 19. 6 Dec 1913. C. M. Pitts, JP.
Aunt Maude lived with Grandma (Ellen Comstock, her mother) and took care of her for many years. Although family records give her name as "Fanny" Maude, her marriage license to Bert L. Redmon reads Frances M. Comstock.
1940 Census. Van Buren. 524 N. 13th Street. [Google maps show that the house is still there! I was in it so many times....] Hh 368
I found a letter Aunt Maude wrote to her nephew Jay Comstock, 2 Mar 1953. She said that she and Mom [Grandma Comstock] were doing all right. Lettie & Cy were on a trip. Nora & Kenney, Ira & Minnie had just returned from a trip [this might have been a trip they made to Florida]. Maude talks about nine months that she had with Mr. Crawley who had just passed away quite suddenly - they were engaged to be married. They had a house ready and extensive plans made for their lives together. She told Jay that Nora was just like her own sister. She expressed a wish to travel, but had no money to do so. She had recently seen Edna & Lester and Colleen and Buddy. She asked Jay to come to Grandma's birthday celebration and reunion to be held on March 29th. Signed: Auntie Maude.
Aunt Maude is buried GraceLawn Cemetery in Van Buren along with many members of her Comstock family.
Frances/Fanny Maude COMSTOCK and Albert L. "Bert" REDMON were married on 6 December 1913 in Uniontown, Crawford County, Arkansas. Albert L. "Bert" REDMON185,186, son of Granville Perry REDMON and Mary Catherine BROWN, was born on 2 January 1892 in Arkansas.187 He died on 16 January 1934 at the age of 42 in Sallisaw, Sequoyah County, Oklahoma.
Aunt Maude signed the funeral register of Kenney Comstock as Maude "Redmon" so I presume that is the correct spelling.
Most family databases state his birth took place in Oklahoma, but the following census show Arkansas. His obit had several errors, including that he was born in Indian Territory and it had the names of his parents slightly incorrect.
