Daughter Patricia Marie ESTEP BOYD recalls that Elizabeth Marie was taken in by an uncle, but that her adoption is unknown.  Her Social Security application gives her parents as John CASHMORE and Elizabeth WISEMAN.  Patricia BOYD claims her mother was called "Gerty".   John CASHMORE, according to Patricia BOYD served in the Spanish American War and fought with Pancho Villa.  She remembers her mother telling her how she (the mother) cried when her husband left for the war.  Walter KACZMARCZYK obtained a copy of Elizabeth's birth certificate which listed her as "Baby Girl WISEMAN" and her real parents as George H. KUBLER and Nellie WISEMAN.(3) Elizabeth may be related to John CASHMORE.  She never met or knew her real parents.  Both parents were not married and were not allowed to get married.  Walter believes that Elizabeth Wiseman and Nellie Wiseman were sisters.
