Robert E. McConachie married Bertha Dennis 11 Jul 1899 in Jackson Co., IL. He was a son to
William E. McConachie and Ellen J. Hill of Sparta, Randolph Co., IL. She was a daughter to
Morrison Dennis and wife Mary Bradley of Jackson Co., IL.
Bertha (Dennis) McConachie died 16 May 1905 at age 26 at the home of her parents while her
husband - a railway conductor - was in Texas on a railway trip.
Bertha left two children: Nellie Estella McConachie (b. 5 Feb 1901) and Glenn McConachie
(b. 22 Feb 1904). Both children were raised by relatives in the Jackson Co. area and may
or may not have seen their father again after the funeral of their mother.
Daughter Nellie McConachie married (1) Ezra Etherton of Jackson Co., IL, about 1928, and
(2) James Mann Walker in 1944. She had at least 3 ETHERTON children: Wayne (b. abt 1920),
Doris (b. abt 1923), anad Betty (b. abt 1925). Nellie died 26 Nov 1976 in Wayne Co., MI.
Son Glenn McConachie married Alice (no last name), she b. abt 1908 TN, circa 1929/1930.
This young couple are found on the 1930 census of Murphysboro, Jackson Co., IL, on 3 Apr
of that year. Sadly, Glenn McConachie died 12 Nov 1930 and was buried in Tower Grove
Cemetery. I have no idea if he did or did not leave a child.
Would appreciate any info.
