She had a brother, four years older and a sister two years older. She is Caucasian - American Indian. She was married at the age of 18 or 19, but only for one year. She became pregnant between marriages by my father who worked as a laborer in a slaughterhouse. She came to CA to have me but it is not known if she returned to Jerome. Is there any chance someone remembers her?
