June Irene was born to Andrew Trumbo and Elsie Ellen “Nellie” Catton McClanahan on 25 Dec 1889 in Livingston County, Illinois. Family stories recount her as a joyful child who sewed happiness all around her, although that picture of 4 year-old June looks far from happy. June grew up in an era where women were just beginning to attend college regularly and graduated from Millikin College with credentials to teach music. She married Finis Ewing Wilson 24 Sep 1919 at her parents’ home. Their son Eugene Andrew Wilson was born 27 Jun 1920. He was my cousin Barb’s father. I know June knew her Todd cousins because they lived nearby, but the rest of the Winter family moved on to Iowa and I wonder if she ever got to meet any of the rest of my branch of the family. I wonder if she dreamed about her great grandchildren and the future. I shall ask her one day.
