104 years ago, 1 December 1915, in Redford, Wayne County, Michigan, my second cousin, twice removed, Euphie Gertrude Jenks married Robert Gresehover, the son of James and Emma Turner Gresehover. Cousin Euphie was born 21 May 1896, in Southfield, Oakland County, Michigan, to Albert Arlington and Elizabeth Jane Varnham Jenks. She and Robert were the parents of two sons: Russell James (1917) and Robert Arlington (1919).
For the longest time I wondered whatever happened to Cousin Euphie. I found where Robert passed away on 13 July 1943, in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan. But, I found no mention of Euphie. I have to admit my fascination with her was the name her parents gave her. I have found that it is Greek for pleasant speech and it’s English equivalent would be Effie.
For some reason, I decided to scan the Thayer-Rock Funeral Home Pages on the Farmington [Michigan] Genealogical Society website. I found Euphie!! She had remarried (I have found no record, nor her second husband’s first name) and she was Euphie Gertrude Domin at the time of her death on 17 November 1976, in Traverse City, Michigan. She was buried in Grand Lawn Cemetery in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan, next to Robert.
