Biography

Maybelle was born in 1912. She was the daughter of John Gintling and Jessie Monroe. She married Fred Baldwin when she was 15. Her age was falsified on her marriage record as 18. Fred and Maybell had a son, Frederick, in 1931. That marriage ended in divorce while Fred was overseas during World War II. Maybelle remarried in 1949 to Herman Ford Parnin. From her obituary in 2000, it sounds as though that marriage also ended in divorce prior to Mr. Parnin's death in California in 1977. Maybelle passed away in 2000.
