In the obituary for Edna (Cottingim) Gilbert is listed her
siblings, but for some of them, it doesn't list their married
names. Excerpts from her obituary:
"...... She is survived by ...... 1 sister, Peggy (John) Shick ......
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Mitchell,
1 grandson Robert, 4 sisters Deliah, Dora, Mattie and Mae,
2 brothers, Willard and Ralph. ......"
For Dora, Mattie and Mae,
one married Birchell Gilbert and one married Fred Helton,
but we don't know which married which!
