I am trying to find information on my grandma, Tillie May Blaisdell Kresse.  I believe that she died around 1943.  I found information that she was married to Merwin Cillar Kresse in Dekalb, Indiana.  Everything I try to search cost money without any guarantee of results and I don't have any to spend on it.  I can find information on Grandpa Merwin but not on her.  Please help.  My email address is loiskresse@yahoo.com
