1918 - Ill still births records…Infant … father Edward Donahoe b 1893 ..mother Lucille Baurr b. 6-22-1896 also died in Sept. 1918 2 days after baby…baby buriel in Mt Olivet Chgo…Lucille buriel in…Richmond Il. Child address on the record ..1436 Thome. (burial assuming she had family in Richmond area?) Bauer or Baurr < obvious typo in this record…full record Below
(Cemetery side note – also in Mt Olivet, Chicago Edward J Donahoe 1867-1937, Letitia Vance Donahoe 1876-1947 and Thomas Patrick Donahoe 1857-1903 source find-a-grave)
1920 census- Joseph Donahoe 57 Mary F Donahoe 51 w/ 5 kids + 1 grnddhild..
Mary M Donahoe 28 (b. approx.. 1892)
Edward A Donahoe 25…. Edward A Donahoe Jr…grandson. 2 ½ (b. 1917)
John F Donahoe 19 Dorothy Donahoe 14 Julia G Donahoe 7 < this would be Juel and John F is actually John T that’s how census enumerator’s made mistakes
And then found marriage in Montana to Nancy Jane Easley in 1921 (picasa pic) and then he got divorced at some point because he is back with his mother Mary in 1930. Also in this stretch his father passes away.
1930 census - Mary Foster Donahoe Head of hshld.. widow ..60… Children; Mary 38 single, Edward A. 36 divorced ..Joseph B. 35 Divorced...Dorothy K. 25, Juel 17 Edward J. grandson, 13 all at 6334 Lakewood address. Ed1 salesman at a Bond house Joe B broker BOT (girls listed as musicians in theatre)
Then he married Myrtle Flood about 1936?-37? mother of Paul Joseph 1938-2000 a little history of Myrtle – in 1910 Myrtle Flood 8 yr old is living in Chicago with her mother and Stepfather…Arthur Bairstow and Anna Bairstow…so Anna must have been married to a Flood guy up until 190? …in 1920 census shows Arthur and Anna and a Bairstow son Arthur 8 yrs old and 3 Flood kids Mabel 21, Myrtle 18 and John Flood 17.
1940- Edward 1 A Donahoe 46 Myrtle Donahoe 38 (b. 1902) Edward 2 A Donahoe 23 ½ brother > Paul J Donahoe 2 (b 1938) Bertrice Flood 36 John T Flood 13 < says relation to head of house Ed1 is sister in law and her son. They are living on Spaulding Ave.. Ed 1 is a plumber Ed2 is a truck driver and Bertrice or Beatrice is a dress saleswoman at a retail store. Says she and son were born in Ohio so I think that she is somehow related but not Myrtle’s sister because of 1910 and 1920 census. Cousins or divorcees from Ohio or something.
So it appears Edward 1 had a tough time or an interesting life depends on who you ask I guess. But perseverance is evident. God bless them all.

Amy note: in 1910 and 1920 The Bauer parents were listed at 1436 Thome – so did Ed 1 and Lucille live out in Richmond at that time?- Did they come to stay at her parents house because she had been ill? So sad and hard to read and fathom his pain. The baby was buried the same day the 28th.. and now here they are just 5 days later with her to bury…Wow So Ed 1 really had some tough times with a lot of change between 1916 and his marriage to Myrtle in mid 1930’s, he has watched his brother’s excel in trading, looks like he tried it in 1930 and for how long? He then has her family and life seemed to have settled down, up until his sudden death in WI in 1973 at 80 yrs old.
In 1900 Bauer family living in Lakeview (just south of Rogers Park) see record below….
1900 census - Jacob Bauer 31 Catherine Bauer 28
Florenz Bauer 7 John Bauer 5 Lucille Bauer 3
Helen Bauer 1 Jenni Sloan 61 Catherine’s mother – she was Scottish living at 3721 N Paulina St.
so why his daughter is in Richmond is one of those mysteries…did she need an autopsy and it was out there? Just curious…
Ed 1’s record of death:

18 May 1893
STATE (YEAR) SSN ISSUED:
Illinois (Before 1951)
