P. also had some negative things to say about Bertha Amelia McKee, which B. was very skeptical about. But I got to thinking maybe P. was not as far off as we thought. I had already suspected Bertha had more than three husbands. I nailed down the fourth one today, and there are people online doing really excellent work on this lovely lady who assert there were 5.
Not 9, but still. I'm going to take another swing at her anyway, because I just figured out that at least one of her step-daughters, Alma Siedel, spent at least a period of time in an orphanage after the husband/father died and Bertha moved onto another husband.
