It reads as though this may be her, if you can access any info on her that would read of her sentenced to Walla Walla Prison for life back in the 1940's her and my Grand Father Roy lee Lytle they were released after 20 yrs. of hard labor. So if this is my Grand Mother it would be of help for me I am searching also for Alice Juanita Lytle she would be my Great Aunt on Esther's side of the family, she had contact with mu mother back in the early 1980's or 70,s but my Mother chose not to keep in touch, as I understand Alice passed away and lived in Cal. not sure where. And if you have any details on Roy Lee Esther's husband that would be great and their son I think named Lee Roy he lived in Washington St. as for as I have heard from other family members Thank you so much I look forward to hearing from you.
I think the Find a grave is a different person, her husband was named George Lytle.
Also Elizabeth may have gone under another name which I think is her maiden name or another marriage the name is Dodd , Elizabeth Esther Dodd Lytle
Were you able to find anything that say's they were sentenced to Walla Walla . Prison in Washington state this would have taken place in the early to mid 1940's my mom is Cathy Joy Lytle Jurgens her adopted name was Radke they lived in Ottawa Oklahoma back when my mother was a small child in fact I think she was born there. thank you
Walla Walla State Penitentiary is a men's correctional facility. I can search the papers if you can give me a good name for her at the time.
Hi , okay now this was her name at the time they were sentenced to Wall Walla prison back in the mid mid 1940's Esther Lytle maybe I am spelling the last name wrong Lytel thank-you so much for the help I am greatful to find a place that might be to help me put it all together, Thanks again I hope this helped. And at that time women were sent there too .

Here’s a different Esther, is this maybe the right one?

You folks are just amazing you are so helpful , I hope you know how grateful I am , gosh to finally get some kind of connection to family even if they are all gone from this earth .Is there any way to search for Percy and Flora Dodd for they would be my Great Grand Parent's. Thank you again for your help
now I am having a little problem , it show's where Esther Lytle in household of Percy Dodd in the 30's but then below reads Esther Lytle in household of lee R Lytle, if Percy is Alice and Esther's dad then how could Esther be in 2 different household's within a 10 yr. span can some one help me out , thanks much
She married Lee Lytle between the two censuses, looks like 1931 or ‘32 since their first child was 7 in 1940.
Thank You for this info. Solved my thoughts I have been told in the past that Esther had remarried several time's. And my mom was born in 1933 so it all comes together now. Thank you again. Maybe you could help me with who Jerry Lytle is , I also think the name John Wesley Lytle were they related to Lee R Lytle.

Oh my gosh this is my family for certain, I wish to thank you so much for the help, now I wonder where my Mom's brother Roy L Lytle was living at the time of his death he may still be alive but I don't know, as I understand we can't ask for living people's records but if he is passed away I would love to know where, so maybe I could somehow seek to know his family, only if he even had kid's. MY mom was born in 1933 ,and she spoke a few times of having a baby sister but no where can I find this. Thank you for your help, as ever Mary.

Likely Esther is the 1920 Census

Here's a link to the marriage of Flora Coppelman and James Percy Dodd: "Texas, County Marriage Index, 1837-1977," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XLXG-QNT : 22 December 2016), J P Dodd and F C Cappleman, 08 Oct 1899; citing Fannin, Texas, United States, county courthouses, Texas; FHL microfilm 1,293,832.

Some records list "James" as his first name, others say "Percy."

Oh this just put some piece's together for me, I am almost certain they are my Grand Parents. Do you have a way of searching for Flora Coppelman if she has a brother by the name of Jerry or if he is a brother to James Lytle, also there was a John Wesley Dodd adopted out . I hope i'm not over loading you .And again I Thank You so much

I haven't been able to connect Flora with parents, but  Percy's mother was named Mary Howard Dodd.  Mary is living next door to Flora and Percy on the 1900 census.  She is widowed and has two daughters named Susie and Minnie living with her.  Her husband's name was Magnus Dodd, he is listed as M.T. Dodd on their marriage record.

I wish to thank you so much your help is wonderful, Thank You again. So amazing to me to have such great people on here. I am so new to every thing and I am still learning how to ask question's and put it in the right place. Have a Great Day
