Lucretia Redwine's parents and siblings!

I posted the obituaries for Lucretia and her sister, Ella, on the and message boards for Redwine, Arizona and Tennessee. Today I received an email from another researcher that contains information about Lucretia's parents and siblings! This information is on

1913 in Knoxville, Tennessee to Leslie Warner Moser b: 5 AUG 1878 in Vonore,
Tennessee. 5 children born in Vonore, Tennessee
10. Edna Earle Redwine b: 18 MAR 1896

From Ella B. Tewksbury's obituary, we have a match to child number 4 above, Ella Beatrice. The birth date is an exact match, and the fact that she married Charles Wesley Yount is a match with information I received regarding Ella's daughter Vivian.

From Lucretia's obituary, we have a matching birthdate and place to child number 3, Bertha Lucretia.

Both obituaries list Leslie Moser as a survivor. She is wife of child number 9, Gypsey Frances.

I'll be looking into this further. It is quite a break! That's the power of the internet in tracking down genealogical information. A couple days ago, I didn't even know Lucretia's name!

My thanks to this researcher, who I don't name only to protect their privacy!
