December 02, 1920 in Nebraska City, Otoe Co. Nebraska - Buried Wyuka (6244)
Cem. NE. City, NE.. She married JOHN W. GILSON June 09, 1909 in Nebraska
City, Otoe Co. Nebraska, son of JOHN GILSON and EDNA HUNTER.
Notes for ELIZABETH TRUDEAU:
There is some question about the surname of Elizabeth. In "The matter of
Estate" # A-2973 filed in the County Court of Otoe County Nebraska on the
8th day of March 1921, next of kin list; (All of legal age).
1. John W. Gilson - Husband of deceased.
2. Ed Holthaus - Brother, of Lawton, Oklahoma.
3. Anna Tanner - Sister, of Yuma, Colorado.
Additionally listed are;
4. Henry Holthaus - Half-Brother, of Chappell, Nebraska.
5. Mrs. Sarah (Holthaus) Burryman - Half-Sister, of Cozad, Nebraska.
6. Lewis or Louis Holthaus - Half-Brother, Address unknown.
7. Mrs. Maggie (Holthaus) Young - Half-Sister, Addess unknown.
The above document would indicate that the father (born in Illinois, Native
tongue was German) may have died. Elizabeth's mother, (born in Missouri)
after baring, Elizabeth, and Anna Trudeau,
re-married having the additional half-brother's and half sister's
Edward, Henry, Sarah, Lewis/Louis and Maggie Holthaus.
Elizabeth was a member of the Knights and Ladies of Security.
There was no mention of children by this marriage, however, there was a
daughter of John Gilson also buried at Wyuka Cem, who died 1904, at the age
of one year 4 months.
Elizabeth died Dec. 02, 1920 of cancer of the stomach.
Notes for JOHN W. GILSON:
There is some doubt about the surname of John's wife. The first name we came
up with was Trudeau, however, her estate settlement documents indicate that
she may have been a Holthaus. (See Elizabeth's page). Ref; marriage record
book P page 4.
There is also some doubt about the infant child of J. Gilson buried at Wyuka
Cem. This child died in 1904 whereas, John and Elizabeth were not married
until 1909. This could indicate that John was married to an Elizabeth Trudeau
prior to marrying Elizabeth Holthaus. ???.
John resided in Nebraska City until 1924.
He later became a resident of LA Platte, Nebraska, where he worked at the
Cornutt lumber yards.
John died in 1946 at the age of 77, and was buried beside his wife at Wyuka
Cem. in Neb. city, Ne.
Child of ELIZABETH TRUDEAU and JOHN GILSON is:
i. DAUGHTER2 GILSON, b. Nebraska City, Otoe Co. Nebraska; d. May 10,
1904, Nebraska City, Otoe Co. Nebraska - Buried Wyuka Cem. (4473).
