My grandfather, John Ragnar Ekstrom, told me that my great-grandmother, Ida May (Day) Whitlock died of tuberculosis. He would not have known her but he was married to Ida's daughter, Iva Mae Whitlock. He also would have known James Luther Whitlock, Ida's widower.

After Ida's death, her four children went to live with their aunts, her husband's sisters.

She may have been buried in the Motley, Minnesota, Cemetery but her grave is unmarked.
