YES, this is her! I'm afraid I just sent a private message to tatreholm & realize I should have used 'reply.' The Gloucester City Directory is now available on Ancestry; it traces Ida & Osborne living at 12 Lookout St. until 1929. Ida, acc. to that source, died in 1927 (as tatreholm reports) & Osborne evidently moved in 1929 (again, per tatreholm). His father was Archibald Linnekin who was married to Eliza Wonson (yes, father & son married Wonsons). I have read that certain families, notably Wonson, Tarr, & Babson, were thick as fleas in Gloucester.
I am sorry for not replying earlier: I only get around to genealogy once in a great while. My grandfather was Sidney A. Linnekin, the son of Osborne & Ida. He worked for businessman Roger Babson (as in Babson College, I think) & considered him his mentor. I would like to trace the Wonson line further back but haven't got to it yet.
Many thanks, Jocelyn L.
