Whipee!! My 3rd great-grandmother’s death certificate arrived today (the one whom I previously posted that I learned she was Native American) and it has her parents’ names as Stephen & Susan Donald. I’m off to search the census records now!
Update 5 minutes later: I found them! I did some searches using the last name Donald, and I could not locate them. So, I decided to browse the pages around where Violetta’s future husband is listed, and sure enough, only a few households away, Stephen & Susan are listed with their children – including Violetta. I’m so thrilled!
