KALFUS, Mary Lillian

Mary Lillian Kalfus
August 1905, Age 2 years and 2 months
Indianapolis, Indiana

This photo was located today in a booth at the Burlington Kentucky Antique Show at the Boone County Fairgrounds.

There was excellent identification on the back of the photo, and an unusual enough name that I felt I should surely be able to find a living relative.

She is the daughter of Charles William Kalfus (1861-1917) and Emma Delia Moore (1863-1946).

The family is found (albeit mispelled) on the 1910 Federal Census, Wayne Township, Indiana, 403 Berwick Street.
CALFUS, Charles W., head, 48, born in Ky of Ky parents, real estate agent
CALFUS, Emma D., wife, 46, born in Ky of Ky parents
CALFUS, Mary L., daughter, 6, born in Indiana of Kentucky parents.

By the time of the 1920 Census, Mary is newly wed to Maurice Russell Hughes. The live at the home of Mary's sister Maud.

She married twice; first to Maurice Russell Hughes, by whom she bore two children, and later to David Roy Beck.

She died in 1987 and is buried in Crown Hill Cemetery, Indianapolis, where her parents are also interred.
