    Minnie Mitchell Wickliffe
    Mrs. Gustavus Woodson Wickliffe (Minnie Mitchell) died in Los Angeles on April 12, 1960. She was 87 years old. She was born in Oberlin on August 4, 1872, [graduated from OHS in 1888 and from Oberlin College in 1892,] and was married on July 3, 1901. Her husband died in 1921. Prior to her marriage she taught at Emerson Institute in Mobile, Alabama, and in high schools in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and St. Louis, Missouri. She was a member of the Women’s Political Study Club and the Mount Hollywood Congregational Church. In 1935 she reported on a college questionnaire that she was a housewife and owner and manager of a house court in the Los Angeles area.
    Mrs. Wickliffe is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Caroline Wickliffe Antoine of Washington, D.C., a son, Gustavus Woodson Wickliffe, of Los Angeles, and a grandson and granddaughter, both of that city.

    could our unidentified be the grandson? he would have been born around 1940

    aunt died in 2000 aged 92...so any living cousins would be 70's or 80's now?

    He had a sister though, I think that may be the key is to find her name and see if she is alive or had any kids?
