The Childrens' Timelines
Arlyn Clinton Kirkpatrick and Helen Katherine Kirkpatrick

updated 4-10-2012

Arly about 3, Helen about 2

We know their mother Mary died in 1911. She told her mother, "Don't worry about me. I'm going to a better place." Where was her mother Sarah Riley at that time? How did Helen end up with her grandmother? When were the children separated? And who raised Arlyn?
