    Helen has a birth certificate Cert ID# DC-23422. Wylie, Helen Ruth, date of birth, 02 May 1906, Mother Maiden Name McLean, and County of Birth, Hennepin (Minnesota). The Cert# is out of order and the "DC" must mean an adjusted birth record. I don't believe she used the "Ruth".

    NEXT Helen is in Lake City, MN with Wylie relatives (my husband's Aunt Madie Kohn) at least in 1927. She met Vern Poquette who was working for the Kohn's (no census records for this one or two years in Lake City. )

    On the Milwaukee Census of April 1930, she and Vern POQUETT, age 26 and HELEN POQUETT, age 22, living at 645 Cass Street, Milwaukee, WI, This is 1930 US Census, Dist 1-250, Page 25 of 46, part of 3rd WARD, Block 212. It says Vern was married at age 20 and Helen at age 18. If that is correct, they married in 1926. It asks the age of FIRST marriage, but I presume that Helen chose to not mention first marriage with JOE. Vern was a Gas Station Attendant and Helen was working as a "Striper" at a Auto Body Shop. Also they were Lodgers (Renters) Oh yes, Vern died Nov 16, 1932. He was born in Waterville, Pepin County, WI Aug 17, 1899. He is buried in Arkansaw, WI (not proven yet).
  9. [S2055] Corrine Sandberg, "See CD for details," e-mail message to John M. Scroggins (K604), Various, from Corrine about Wylie family, 8 Feb 2009
    Who was the Frank and Anna SCOTT family, they were on the reverse side of Will Wylie's gravestone? The two families bought them in 1917, probably after Will Wylie died as their CERT #'s were concurrent. The Scott's lived at 2630 Irving Ave S.

    Also Fred G Weiss and Flossie Weiss had some claim to Lot 1 and 2. Helen Wylie Zimmerman designated in 1958 that the Weiss' was to be buried in those lots. I see from my notes that in 1958, Helen Wylie Zimmerman's husband was George P Zimmerman. They lived in Milwaukee, Wi although the Cemetery record that I was quoting did not confirm the address of Helen and George.

    To end this, I find in my notes that Helen (supposedly adopted) was born in Minnesota (from 1910 census )but her father was born in Wisconsin, mother born in Minn. As I analysis the 1910, I believe Mary McLean gave the impression that Helen was her child, see the line that she answered that she had one child and one child living. I believe the Census Taker could have reversed Helen's father and mother's birthplace.

    One more BOMB, Helen has been died for some years so I can tell you that she had a daughter with her first husband (Helen was young) and the daughter was raised by the first husband's parents in Wisconsin. Helen would go to visit and some explanation was given in regard to the visits. Much later, the daughter was told that Helen was her mother. That is all just oral history from my husband's relatives, but they were always in contact with Helen until she died. I know that Helen is not your blood relative, but we touched on this earlier in our correspondence. Enough for tonight.
