McHale Family Genealogy Forum
Dear Fellow McHale Researchers,
I came across your McHale Forum and need your help. The McHale's in my Family Tree are sisters Mary and Sarah
McHale. Mary was born I believe in the
1870's, her sister Sarah was born on Feb.
02, 1880. Sarah is my Great Grandmother.
Mary McHale married Emil Ruth and
had 4 children: Mable, Harry, Amelia and
James. Mary died in 1899 while giving
birth to James or from the complications
(infections, blood loss, etc.). A few monthes after Mary died Emil Ruth married
Sarah her younger sister to help him raise
his 4 children. They were married on Sept.
05, 1899 in Clayton MO, St. Louis CO., at
the courthouse at 2:00 p.m..
Emil and Sarah had 8 children: Maurice
(Morris), Ruth, Joseph, Freid (Fred), Emil Jr., Emma, Sarah and Bernice. Sarah died
in 1921 at 41 yrs.. Both her and her son
Morris died from TB. Morris was in the
Navy during WW1 and was exposed to
the disease and was sent home to die. His
mother while caring for him became ill and
they died a few monthes apart. Morris died
in July and Sarah in November.
We do not know the names of Mary and Sarah's birth parents and I do not know if Mary and Sarah were born here in
the US or in Europe. Can you help me?
