Hilda was my step-grandmother. She was born in 1903 in Mercer County, Ohio and her maiden name was Kleinhenz. She contracted tuberculosis in her 20's and had a long recovery at a sanitorium in New Mexico. She was told that she wouldn't live to see 30, so did quite well to make it to 86 years old! She married my grandfather Robert Creeden on August 24, 1937 in Cleveland, OH and they made their home in Dayton, OH.
