In Reply to: Madsen from Kansas by Tina Stoddard of 389

Dear Tina,
The line of madsens that you are wondering about is my grandmothers sister. My grandmother was Lena Madsen, married to Ray Collins. Her sister is Myrtle, who was married to Lotis Gordon. Frank Madsen is the only one of the madsen's from that family that is still alive and he lives in Boise Idaho. I do not know what Aunt Jessie's maiden name is.
I know that when my grandmother and grandfather married, they lived in Anthony Kansas. That is where my mother and her brothers and sisters were born. Aunt Myrtle's mothers name was Ida May Dillion and her fathers name was Theodor Ingram Madsen but everyone called him Pete.
This is a short break down of the children of May and Pete:
Elmer - married 2 times (1)Mabel (2) Margret
Ella - -Married 2 time (1) George Hern (2)? Smith
Ida - Married once (1) "Dunny" Clarence Dunbar
Lena - Married once (1) Rufus Ray Collins
Lilly - Married once (1) Willie Wykes
Myrtle - Married once (1) Lotis Gordon
Issac - died at age 21- Shot by a friend while on a hunting trip.
John - married several times the last one was to Tense
Elsie - married 2 times (1) Porter Hawkins (2) Gene Woodard
Frank - married once (1) Jessie
My mother,Ina, can give you a lot of information as can my aunt Rose. If you would like to contact me you can call me at (360) 895-9672. My name is Elena but I go by Lynn.
Hope to hear from you soon,
Lynn
p.s. Aunt Rose wants to know if you are darlene's daughter.
thanks
Lynn
