Notes

  • Elvira had three given names.  In the 1880 census she was reported asElvira.  In the 1920 census she was reported as Elvira J, In CityDirectory entries she is consistently listed as Elvira J E.  In the1940 census we learn her J name was Jane when she is enumerated asJane E Rhymer.  She is called Jane on her husband's death record.  Itis likely her third given name is Esther, since she named one of herdaughters Esther.  This name is not firmly documented for Elvira.

    According to the 1900 census, Elvira married Andrew Rhymer about 1891.

    For some reason Elvira is not listed with her husband and children inthe 1910 census, though Andrew is reported as married.  In 1910 thechild reported in 1900 as Dave but female, does not appear.  Sheshould be showing up as about 15 years old.  Olif E s confirmed asOlaf as we surmised.  In 1920 he is listed under his middle name ofEvert (probably meant to be Everett).
