Hulda Ray Williams

Maude Higgins

Violet Reese

Children with Hulda Ray Williams:
• Martha Florence (1898-1969) married Walter Clinton McCoy
• Joseph Henry (1900-1969) married (1) Bernice [–?–], (2) Hazel Bye Chambers
• Hulda Isabell (b. 1905) married Lloyd E. Berg Children with Violet Reese:
• Dudley (b. 1912)
• daughter (b. 1914)

Around 1902, Dudley left Delphi, Indiana, for McCroy, Arkansas, then went to Des Moines, Iowa, in 1910. At the time of his death in an auto accident, he was employed as a log buyer.

The local newspaper stated that his widow and two small children in Moberly, Missouri, survived him. However, it seems that he never divorced Mrs. Maude Langton. So, he may or may not have been legally married to Violet Reese. Dudley and Maude did leave Des Moines and lived in Pekin, Illinois, for several years after Mr. Reese threatened Dudley. Mrs. Violet Langton brought Dudley’s body to Frankfort, Clinton County, Indiana, for burial, despite the complaints of Mrs. Maude Langton.
