Re: Raner's of Virginia

This MF Raner was my gr grandfather Millard Filmore Raner. Jessie was his 2nd wife. I find no more information on her past this marriage unless the cemetery inscription below is her's. I don't know if the marriage ended in divorce or what, as at the time of Philmore's death, his son listed Philmore as widowed. This has always puzzled me as his first wife (whom he divorced) was living at that time (1922) and no mention was ever made of Jessie in any family information.

There were no children of this union (Phil + Jessie). Millard Filmore (Philmore) had only one child, Curtis, and that was with his first wife, Susie Cooper Miller.

I did find a Jessie L Witcher buried in the West cem at Panora in Guthrie County with this inscription:
WHITCHER, GL d. Aug 7. 1890 29y 6m 2d h/o JL
Jessie L 1866-1950
Bethel E 1886-1957 IOOF lodge emblem.

That's all I have on Jessie
