Researching I have come across many confusions; on daughters marriage lines it says Ilene. There is also a marriage line for an Omar Cory and Irene Ives. However according to this Irene's marriage lines to Morton Bowers, and her daughter Alices' marriage lines her maiden name is Wardwell. Plus on her marriage lines it list her parents as John Wardwell and Lois Mendenhall.

I came across a 1910 Census for Irene J Ives She is the Adopted Daughter of Henry and Martha Ives[5] this may solve the mystery.

In 1900 it lists her mother as a widow, however on her marriage lines it says her father is living so possibly divorced. As her Mother died before 1922 it is possible that the Ives did adopt her.

In 1910 Frank Pierce is listed as Widowed [6]

I found a find a grave where she is burried with Omar but this needs further research[7]
