Ella Hattery was born in April of 1880 in Deloit, Milford Township, Crawford County, Iowa. By the time of the Iowa Census of 1895, she was living with her mother in Vail, Crawford County, Iowa. The following year she married John Edwards Jr. at the tender age of only sixteen years. Their marriage was not a good one. It ended in divorce on May 7, 1903. John sued for divorce on the grounds that Ella wasn’t a “fit” mother, and that she had committed adultery. She apparently never entered a plea to defend herself, and she never showed up in court; so the judge decided in his favor. He got custody of the four children and divorced her. She eventually married another man named Kryselmier. I have no information on her after that.
