    Notes 
    • Wilma Jean Estlack married Virgil Randolph Bunnell in Clarksburg in 1946. They apparently divorced. No children. He was listed as married when he was killed in a traffic accident in 1956, but Wilma had already remarried by then.

      Wilma remarried Robert L. Davis in about 1948. They resided in or near Youngstown, Mahoning County, Ohio, where they had two sons. They divorced in Trumbull County, Ohio in 1968.

      Wilma subsequently married and divorced a McGowan, probably in Ohio.

      She then married Walter Ray Harris in Trumbull County in 1982. Since the marriage is not mentioned in either of their obituaries, they apparently also divorced, although she did retain the Harris surname.

      Wilma's first husband, Virgil Bunnell, had a brother Clifford who also married a woman named Wilma. Both Wilma Estlack and Wilma Johnson were born in 1927, and both are buried at Floral Hills Memorial Gardens. Wilma Johnson Bunnell is buried with her husband Clifford. Wilma Estlack Bunnell Davis McGowan Harris is also buried at Floral Hills, probably near her parents.
