      I understand Ralph (I’m told he was adopted as a Bartlett) could have lived in Rocky River, OH as a railroad superintendent, but I am not sure if it is the right Ralph.

    Notes 
    • Email from Chris Connell-Skurky, July 2011:
      In any case, I intend to do some research at the Lorain County PublicLibrary to establish the parentage of Will, Grace Plum, and Ralph Bartlett. I understand Ralph (I’m told he was adopted as a Bartlett) could have lived in Rocky River, OH as a railroad superintendent, but I am not sure if it the right Ralph. Grace Plum is also said to have been adopted – I’m told she grew up in Cuyahoga Falls - and she is said to have died in California and had twosons, Paulie and Theodore. But this is yet to be verified.

      Notes from Chris Connell-Skurky Rootsweb Tree, The Makings of an American Mutt:

      Kathleen Johnson: Third-born of George McKisson and Emma Miller:
      Ralph Mckisson later adopted as Ralph Bartlet. I think his adoptive parents were friends in some way to Emma and they moved to Florida and so he grew up there.
      I forgot to mention that I do have a little information on Edward Lawrence Murphy, the other son of Emma Miller McKisson Murphy. He was my grandfather's, Paul Urvan Murphy, older brother (10 years older).
      I will have to check with my Aunts for personal information about him and get back to you, though. I think he never married, was an electrician and had some type of electrical work accident.
      I also wanted to mention that even though Emma gave her other children up for adoption from previous McKisson marriage, Emma and all her children must have remained fairly close because we have family pictures of Will McKisson, Grace McKisson (Plum) and Ralph McKisson (Bartlett) and Edward, and Paul Murphy all together when they are much older: 40's,50's,60's.
      Also, my aunts have family memories about visiting their "half" uncles. Will McKisson married a woman named Maud and they did not have any children.
      Ralph Bartlett ends up being wealthy, married with children, and lived in Cleveland, Ohio. Lived in New York at the time of Emma Miller Murphy's death in 1943-1944.

      Ralph and Adda did not live here long. Eventually, they moved to (2175 Lakeland Boulevard) - back in Lakewood - by 8/16/1939 (MORTGAGE DEED)

Sheet Number:3b

      Then Ralph and Adda moved to West 159th, in 1942. (The address on West 159th is near the West Park and Triskett RTA rapid stations. Ralph worked for the Cleveland Transit System (CTS), and it may follow that - prior to his move to Chicago - Ralph Sr. used the streetcar system he worked for.)
      Ralph Junior gets married, and Ralph Jr. moves to Florida (Oct 18, 1942, Plain Dealer). 
      Ralph Sr. - a month later - takes a job in Chicago (November 15, 1942, Plain Dealer) to work the railroad (logistics) for the Army. He would not be able to sell the house at 3106 West 159th Street until March 27th, 1943 to Anna Pataki, when he was already living in Chicago - according to the Cuyahoga County Recorder's Office.
