Mabel was living in an Orphanage and Dennis was a Ward of the state
(Minnesota) in 1910 which makes sense with the passing of Mittie in 1908.
The 1910 census indicates that John was a widow and boarding in a home in
Hennepin, Minnesota. I am not sure what became of Marion, I did find a 1910
census for a Marion Winch that is residing in Plymouth, Hennepin, Minnesota
as a hired boy, but both parents are listed as being born in Ireland so I am
not sure of it's validity.
My records also indicate that Mary Ellen Jervis Dawley died 26 Aug 1914, in
Monroe, Snohomish, Wa.She was living with her daughter Mary Abigail Dawley
Heintz at the time. The next time I am up that way I plan to stop in to see
if I can find out what cemetery she is buried in. I have a collection of
Dawley headstones from Washington State I want to add it too.
Here is a note I found in an unknown authors tree.
Note: John and Mitte had a daughter, Mabel. Also a son, I think. Mabel was
raised in a Catholic orphanage and stayed on working in the orphanage as an
adult. In her 40's she came to Spokane to visit us, her relatives she had
never seen. Here, at a dance, she met and married "Mr. Arnold", as she
always called him. He was an elderly gentleman, and his children were not
too happy about the marriage, but Mabel took good care of him, and I believe
they were happy.
I ran this out and found that Mabel married Emanuel E Arnold in 1949 in
Spokane. Mabel died 20 Sep 1989 in Spokane. Emmanuel died 17 Feb 1965 also
in Spokane. I verified all of this through the Washington State Digital
