We all have a story to tell. Some speak louder than others. Listen closely to hear the stories of our ancestors echoing under our footsteps. They are the authors. We are the keepers.

Wordless Wednesday: Ida Lois (Elderkin) Warren

Ida Lois (Elderkin) Warren, Portrait. Tintype Photograph. c. 1877, most likely taken near Spartansburg, Crawford County, PA or near Corry, Erie County, PA. Privately held by Herstoryan, Houston, Texas. 2009

Daughter of Dyer White and Lois (King) Elderkin, Ida Lois Elderkin was born 18 August 1856 in New York. She married Murray Heller Warren, son of Edward Morgan and Sarah C. (Schriver) Warren,  11 Aug 1877 in PA. She died 25 Apr 1936 at her residence 424 NE 10th Street Oklahoma City, OK. She is buried in Rose Hill Cemetery in Oklahoma City. 

She was the mother of three known children: Murray Heller Warren Jr; Laura Blanche Warren wife of O. H. Berryman; Sarah/Sadie Lois Warren wife of William Levis Judson (the one whose bridal portrait was restored) 

She is my great great grandmother. 


  1. Ooooh, I love tintypes! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Wow. Nice picture. How is she related? Astrid.

  3. Astrid, she is my great great grandmother. Is there anyone in your tree to whom you feel especially close. She is the one with whom I feel a special bond - and she died almost 40 years before I was born. Strange, huh, or can you relate? ;)

    Also, thanks for the reminder that I should put some biographical info with the pictures - I totally forgot!
