who is clem white?

+1 vote

I'm looking for any help with the white family in chicago illinois in 1900. I need information on a clement white born 1886. He married Gertrude Bade. The children they had together were Raymond charles born 1909 and beulah born 1908. He changed his name to summers for some reason and I can't really make out why so I can't be sure if my tree is right. I think he married two women because there is a caroline gemmer too that married a clem white and it seems to be the same person. He was a milk wagon driver I believe and I also think he doed in 1917 if I have the right guy that is! Any help would be so greatly appreciated!!

If you look on family search at birth/marriage/death records:

Arthur Raymond and Robert White are the children of CHARLES White b. Indiana and Caroline Gemmer born Indiana.

Lafayette and Beulah Summers are the children of CLEMENT Sommers born IL and Gertrude Bade.

I crossed refernce the two families and charles white is actually clement white that married caroline..he (yet again) changed his name..the marriage records for both women are clem white with the same birth day as well parents places of birth change sometimes though. Layfaette was listed as a canadian. Layfaette's name changed to Raymond and HE had a Robert.. there are so many coincidences between all the children of ole clement. He WAS the milkman by the way..lol So having two women isnt completely out of the question but I just can't be sure. this is making me nuts believe me!! I DO appreciate the searching you did. That was really nice of you to find those records for me!
