Dan Shire

I received a "Return of Marriage" record from the Illinois Archives today.

George W Shire was married to Emma Muchmore (formerly Emma Kairts) on 19 May 1923 in Oblong, Crawford County, Illinois.

Emma's father's name was Isaac Kairts and her mother's name was Mary Hormon (not sure of the last name, the handwriting is difficult to read).

All census data shows the last name of her family as Kirts (without the "a" as the record states). Emma was previously married to C.S. Muchmore.

The 1900 census shows her having a daughter, Rosie (born 1885). Later censuses show her as having birthed one child with one child living. The 1920 census includes Emma's granddaughter, Maurine Walters.
