Peas Family Scattered

A year after Carrie Peas died, what was left of her family was broken up.

Hobart News 17 Aug. 1922.

The oldest child, Albert, was then about 15. Since both Carrie and Jesse had been orphans, it's not surprising that there were no grandparents, uncles or aunts to help out with the children. I believe Albert was sent here, and George here. I can't identify the "Girls' home at Wabash" where Myrtle was sent.

What I'm wondering is how Arthur Kemerley got involved.
