Effie Mae playing cards or telling fortunes. (Mother: Hannah Macy Diveley; Father: Unknown) Burnside Bambrough.

Effie Mae was born in 1908 in Brownstown, IL. She was 16 years when she pretended to be a fortune teller or card player in this pic. Her last name listed on the back of the original photo is BURNSIDE, her first husband who died jumping off a moving train. Her father is unknown. A fake father surnamed Fisher is listed on her birth certificate. My Aunt Effie & my mother, Jennie, said that Fisher was not her father. Effie's stepDad is Henry Krempp. She had no children but two husbands: Bill Burnside & Bill Bambrough. She died in Peoria, IL. Her Mom, Hannah Macey Diveley, died 1922 when she was an about 14 years. Her half-sisters, Marie, Blanche, & Jennie, moved to Holdrege, NE to be taken care of by their Maternal Aunt Clara (nee: Diveley) Fleischman. Her brother, Henry, was unofficially adopted by Joe & Annie Nagel, & they eventually moved to Arizona near the Navajo Indian Reservation.
