Elizabeth Anne Brinlee was the second child of Hiram Carroll Brinlee Jr. and Diza Caroline Boone. Harvey Mulder was the son of George D. Mulder and Angeline Walker. Harvey’s first wife was Eveline Langham; they had children George Monroe, Elizabeth (who apparently died as an infant), Oscar, and James Calvin.

There are several mysteries, or at least some missing information, connected with this family. To begin with, I do not know anything about Leander Scott – parents, dates, or what happened to him. Doll Brinlee was a widow when she married Harve Mulder, so Leander Scott must have died some time between 1884, when his daughter Lora Mae was born, and 1887, the approximate year when Harve Mulder and Elizabeth Brinlee Scott married.

I also do not know what happened to Lora Mae, though it appears she had died by 1910, since the 1910 census indicates that one of Doll Mulder’s children had died by then, and the others are accounted for. I do not know when Lora Mae Scott died or whether she had married before she died.

The final mystery is who the parents are of the Duckworth grandchildren living with Harve and Doll on the 1910 and 1920 censuses, as well as an adopted Duckworth daughter shown with them on the 1930 census:

Claud/Cloyd and Roy Duckworth, grandsons, both age 9, are living with the family on the 1910 census.

Claud, grandson, age 19, and Jessie, granddaughter, age 15, are living with the family on the 1920 census.

Lora, adopted daughter, age 9, is shown with the family on the 1930 census.

Might Claud, Roy, and Jessie be children of Lora Mae Scott (they would have been the right ages – born between 1901 and 1905 – to have been her children)? And perhaps Lora was the daughter of Claud or Roy?

I would love to share information with anyone related to/researching this family; you can contact me at my e-mail address, which can be found by going to my profile page (there is a link to that page in the About Me section to the left).

[Many thanks to Debbie Blanton McCoy for corrections in some of the locations associated with this family - some much appreciated assistance from a very kind fellow Texan!]
