Ida May Stockmaster Miller Dunaghey

Ida is my 2nd Great Aunt. Our common ancestor is my grandfather Frederick Charles Stockmaster.

Ida was born in Sept of 1878 in Newark, Licking County, Ohio and died January 1958 in Pinellas County, Florida. Ida’s father was John Stockmaster, an engineer out of Newark, Ohio for the B & O Railroad. Her mother was Katherine Cole Stockmaster. Both of Ida’s parents were born in Baden, Germany immigrating to the United States in the early 1800’s.

Her brother and sisters were:
• Charles Joseph
• Anna
• Dora
• Emma

Here is Ida’s wedding announcement in the Newark Advocate newspaper:

Marriage of Mr. Milton M. Miller and Miss Ida M. Stockmaster at First Methodist Parsonage Monday evening, March 20, at his residence on North Fifth Street, Rev L.C. Sparks joined in holy wedlock Mr. Milton M Miller and Miss Ida Stockmaster. Mr. Miller is the son of Mrs. Mary Miller of 37 Shields Street, this city, and is a fireman on the B. & O. Railroad. His bride is the highly esteemed daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Stockmaster of this city. Mr. Edward Coin and Miss Anna Stockmaster, a sister of the bride, attended the young couple. Mr. and Mrs. Miller’s home will be in this city.

The marriage took place on March 20, 1905, in Newark, Licking County, Ohio.
Ida and Milton divorced in 1912.

Here is an article from the Newark Advocate about the divorce:

Divorce Case Continued
 The divorce matter of Ida M. Miller vs. Milton H. Miller was heard by Judge Hunter in the probate court Saturday morning. Mrs. Miller seeks divorce on the grounds of gross neglect of duty. The court was not satisfied on the question of the residence of the woman and held the matter up until further testimony is secured by counsel. Attorney W.D. Fulton represents the plaintiff.
Newark Advocate September 14, 1912 Saturday-page 3
After her marriage to Miller, Ida married Charles A. Dunaghey who was born 1880 in Detroit and died in 1962 in Florida. The couple married in Chicago on September 20, 1920. This was Charles’ second marriage, his first wife was Emma Schave. Charles married Emma on June 16, 1909 in Detroit, Michigan.
Charles’ obituary:
Charles A. Dunaghey
Tampa Tribune (microfilm) Date: 1966 12 11
Dunaghey, Charles A.; 86; 1966
Pinellas Park–Charles A. Dunaghey, 86, of 6289 Park Blvd., died Friday. A native of Detroit, Mich., he came here 16 years ago from Chicago, Ill. He was a retired security guard; A Protestant and a member of the Masonic Lodge. There are no immediate survivors. Dunaghey, Charles A.; 86; 1966

I found out Ida was a telephone operator for Bell Telephone back in 1899 in Newark, Ohio. This fact is interesting since I was a telephone operator for GTE for 11 years in Indiana.

It always amazes and thrills me as I travel in my ancestors’ footsteps!

I know these folks are my Stockmaster ancestors, probably John, Katherine and two of their daughters.
