Evline’s stepmother, Lois C. Layton, put her in an orphanage when her father died in 1889. At age 15, she was adopted by the George A. Monroe, Sr. family, originally from Michigan City, who now made their home in Ferndale, Washington. After her marriage, she began to wonder about her family. Her mother, Estella, had married John F. Neu, and was living in Omaha Nebraska. They were reunited in 1907. After her divorce in 1920 from Jacob Shelter, Evline became a camp cook for logging camp #9 above Hamilton, Washington.
