Ten years ago she came to College Place, Wash., to live with her son, and died at his home, March 1, 1916, in the bright hope of meeting the Saviour when he comes to claim his waiting people. A. J. Breed

The problem is: Her name was Helena. Her son George A. RULAFORD was identified as Edgar McMullin, with a wife & 2 female children prior to 1870. I do have a photo of her holding my mother (age - a few months) in 1908.
