Myrtle was friends with her cousin "Toots" whose real name might have been "Rose", daughter of Lucy Phillips and "Deb" Woolever. They all lived in Harbor Springs in 1914. Her Grandma Nancy Vaughn was living there, too. That's where she met Mr. Bashaw, her last husband. Myrtle says Nancy moved with him to East Jordan, Michigan and she died there.
