red mail Searching for descendants of Charles Sumner Lett & Emma C Johnson
I would greatly appreciate help finding information about my grandfather Charles (Charley) Sumner Lett. I have fair understand of his life after he came to Canada from the US in 1910 but before June 12, 1889 when he married Emma C Johnson daughter of William R Johnson and Lydia A Campbell in Miller County, Missouri he has proven very elusive. What I'd like to find is information about the first 35 years of his life and ideal something about the family he left behind. Through various on-line sources I have the following details on his wife Emma and 2 of his offspring  Effie & Ella. - On the 1910 US census Emma is a roomer along with her 2 daughters; Effie & Ella in the Mary L Hutchins household in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Race; Mulatto. Birthplace; Ohio. Parents' birthplace; Ohio. Married: 20 years. Children; 4 - 2 living. No occupation listed. Able to read & write. - On the 1920 US census Emma is living with her brother John M Johnson and his 5 children; Flora, Homer, Estelle, Richard & Pansy in Cimarron, Logan, Oklahoma. Race; Mulatto. Able to read & write. No profession listed. Listed as a Widow. - And on the 1930 US census she is living with her daughters; Ella (Hanks) & Effie (Busher or Boston), son-in-law James Hanks, 3 grandchildren; James, Helen & Edward and 3 lodgers @ 1910 East 13 Street in Kansas City, Jackson, Missouri. Birthplace; Ohio. Parents' birthplace; Ohio. Married at age; 21. Race; Black. Listed as a Widow. I believe that Ella & James Hanks had at least 3 children; Helen L born June 11 1924, Edward born about 1926 & James E born about 1928. Helen married and divorced a Taylor. She died November 6, 1993 @ Aultman Hospital in Canton, Stark, Ohio. She was 69. Divorced. Occupation; Bookkeepers, accounting or auditing clerks - Air Transportation. Race; African American (Black). Education; 12. SS#; 514-22-5437 Maybe an outline of what I know will trigger something with my fellow 'Lett' researchers. - In the 1900 US census he along with his wife Emma and 3 children; Stanly, Effie & Ella are living in Glaize, Miller, Missouri. From the census record I understand he was 35. A Farmer. Black. His birthplace was Michigan and his parents birthplace was Ohio. He owned is farm mortgage free. - On August 11, 1910 he crosses the Canadian/American border at Emerson, Manitoba. Occupation listed as a Farmer. Destination: Edmonton. Cash on hand: $68 - In the 1911 Canadian census he is a lodger in the Sarah Mealey household (appears to be a boarding house) @ 1 B Little in Edmonton, Alberta. Age 40. Place born; USA. Year of Immigration; 1910. Tribe; Irish. Nationality; American. Religion; Roman Catholic. Married. Occupation listed as a Brick Maker (Brick Yard), Employed 16 weeks in 1910. Hours worked per week; 60. Earnings 1910; $200. Able to read & write. Language spoken; English. - On December 15, 1911 he is accepted for Homestead for the N.E. Quarter of Section 4, Township 57, Range 1W of the 5 Meridian - In the 1916 Alberta, Saskatchewan & Manitoba census he is living alone @ Township 57, Range 1, Meridian 5, Sion, Alberta. Age 41. Occupation listed as a Farmer (Own Account). Tribe Irish, Nationality; American, Roman Catholic. Single. - On February 26, 1918 he marries Jessie Ann Brearley in the District of Busby, Alberta. - On May 19, 1928 he pleads guilty to the charge of bigamy and on May 25, 1928 he is sentenced to 6 months hard labour in Fort Saskatchewan Jail. Charley dies on November 26, 1958. According to his obituary he was 94 and died after a prolonged illness in an Edmonton area hospital. He was born in Ohio and had worked on building the Alberta Legislature in 1912. Hed supplied the community of Sion with milk and later delivered the mail in Busby. According to a grave marker supplied by the Province of Alberta his date of birth was November 8, 1865. Thank you, Stephanie
