Laura, Thanks for writing. I have done all that you mentioned below.
Guardianship papers only give the name and date of the guardian, who is
Augusta Scharrenberger. Bertha left no will. However, now that you
mention it, I did not request probate records... think that would help? Or
when I requested a will, would they include that? There was no will.
