Sunday's Obituary: Sadie Hesser Mowery
Sadie Hesser Mowery was my 1st cousin, 3 times removed. Oh and add a "half" to that since her grandfather and my 3rd great-grandfather, James Warren Hesser, was married twice. Sadie was the descendant of his second wife, Mariah Ann Hahn, and I was descended from his first wife, Sophia Humphrey.
Lima would be Lima, Ohio.
If you've been reading along with the excerpts from my grandmother's 1933 diary, then you will have read the name "Hesser" and more specifically "Uncle Jont." Uncle Jont, or Jonathan Hesser, was Sadie's uncle, the brother of her father.
How's that for convoluted?
