Looking for Ernest Albert (Robidoux) Wilson who married Ethel Cordelia Davis.

+3 votes
Great granny Ethel married Ernest both of Oaklahoma, I believe. The Davis line stretches back to Jefferson Davis. He would have been a very distant cousin, I think. Her parents were Mary Elizabeth Black and Albert Davis. I don't know anything about great grandpa Ernest. Ernest was a Robidoux adopted by the Wilson's. he is somehow connected to the Robidouxs/ Oregon Trail.


thank you,

This may be more related to your other question.  Ethel appears on census data with parents Alford/Alfred M Davis and Mary.  Later with Ernest and her sister Gladys.  Most Census data indicates Alford was b. in MO in 1872 and Mary E was b. in IL.  One census of Ethel and Ernest indicated he was b. in KS.

You might try searching the many siblings of Ethel using the free search tool at: https://familysearch.org/search  to see if you can find more on Alford and Mary?
