bullet  General Notes:

Estella's mother Ida Henry died when Estella was 8 years old. Her father, Charles, put the two girls up for adoption. Minnie went with one family, and Estella was adopted by the Wertman's, the local undertaker.

The Schleicher children remember their mother:

Mother as an orphan was taken in and lived with Willis
Wertman in mantzville where she worked as a young girl as telephone operator
I believe Dad was working at the Packerton Shops RR and do not know how they
met but recall his tales of helping with embalming in Wertmans funeral home
where they lived for a year or two and where I was born.

Ernest Schleicher, Estella's son, remembers that Estella was not an orphan and was raised, not adopted, by the Wertman's.
