52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks – Week 6

Today, I am writing about my great grand mother, Jenny Eugene Ude (Jenny Eugene Moyst) aka Eugene. I do not have a picture of her unfortunately, however this is the first shocking death I have come across during my research.

Jenny Eugene Ude was born on 19th Janaury 1901 in Wales.  She was one of seven to Theodore Ude and Anne Ude (formerly Lebender). Her parents were German who had immigrated in USA prior to immigrating to United Kindgom.

Her father, Theodore Ude (aka Louis Ude) passed away in Jan 1909 from Lock Jaw.  The information I have found is that Theodore had a issue with his foot and request some cow manure onto his foot, which led to tetanus and lock jaw.

On 7th May 1927, Eugene married William Ernest at Cardiff Registry.  They had seven child during there marriage.

On 20th April 1957, Jenny Eugene passed due to a pulmonary oedema due to aspirin poisoning.  She took her own life.  See below of the newspaper article taken from the Barry & District, dated 9th May 1957 page 2.
