I am seeking information on a pair of sisters that lived in Illinois between 2/14/1893 and 1990. The first lady's name is listed on her tombstone and Myrtle Parker West, 2/14/1893 - 4/15/1977. She lived her later years in Warm Springs, Meriwether County, Georgia and surrounding area. Her Social Security number was assigned in Indiana before 1951 and was 307-03-0462. To those of us she took care of, she was Mamie. The second lady is her sister, Ruth (Davenport). I know that at one time Ruth and her family lived in the Champaign area. I have been told that the maiden name of these girls was Huberon or something similar.

My intrest in Mamie is pretty straightforward. She was a family friend when i was going up and she was the second grandmother to me and my sister. It seems a shame that she should have been buried here alone, and I would really like to know what happened to the rest of the family. If anyone knows of these sisters or this family, please ask them to notify me. I have an old picture of Mamie that might be recognizable to some.
