TARPLEY, Stella

Journal by cheriboyd7

On another site I requested help in a cemetery lookup. Stella Tarpley, died 12/25/1934 in Columbus OH at the age of 23. She had two children, the youngest was my father, Cecil. He was nine months at the time. The other son, older than my Dad was not known at the time. Stella's body was returned to her home Hillsboro OH and I haven't found any cemetery records to where she is buried.

Stella and her family are much interest merely for one point. How did her family not take and raise her nine month old child?

My byline is Finding Pieces Of Me.....I'm trying. My father never did.

Dear Cheri, We shall never know the situation Stella's family were in at the time. Stella was born Stella MAE TARPLEY on the 29 April 1911 in Columbus Ohio.Her father was William TARPLEY and her mother Blanche WEST she died Christmas day 1934 of Pneumonia, caused by Tuberculosis.
I have not yet found the ancestry of her parents. I don't think Stella was raised by them. Perhaps another member of the family raised her.
Please pm me if you have any further questions. Jan
