  • Notes 
    • Bertha Howell was also the caretaker for Betty Howell, the daughter of her youngest brother following the death of his wife.

      Upon the death of Betty Howell's (later Traver) mother in 1924 she was given into the care of Bertha Howell.  In 1929-30 Betty was given into the care of Bertha's daughter, Helen Camp Richardson - who Betty refers to as Mother.
