My great grandmother was Eleanore Inloes Schultz Ferguson Davie who died in 1913. nee Inloes Schultz. She married my great grandfather (who was from England) Henry Herrick Ferguson Davie (26June1869-16Feb1913) in 1891 in Philadelphia. She and he had separated, their 3 sons were brought back to England by their paternal uncle, and then Eleanore and Henry died one month apart, he on 16Feb1913 at Norristown Ward 6 PA, and she on 19Mar1913.
We really want to know what happened to her after her children were taken away which happened in about 1905. It's such a sad story as women in those days had no power regarding child custody. We recently discovered she had good reason to leave him.
I believe her father was William Schultz whom we've been told was a successful merchant in Philadelphia. There was a rumor Eleanore was born in Florida. We can't find a death certificate for her. The only way we know the date of death is from the family listing in Burkes Peerage.
The only other Inloes Schultz we've seen on the web is Susette Inloes Schultz Keast, an artist who lived from 1892-1932 and who was married to Philadelphia architect Wm. R. Morton Keast. The Susette and Morton Keast had two daughters.
We feel Eleanore might have been an aunt to Susette and would love to speak with any descendants who could fill us in on the Schultz family and Eleanore and her siblings. Thank you.
