The Social Security Death Index has the following:

Name: Edith Oesterreich
Birth: 8 Oct 1909
Death: Apr 1986 - Hawthorne, Douglas, Wisconsin, United States of America
Civil: Railroad Board (Issued Through)
1930 US Census for Superior, Wisconsin

Edith Shaw, 20yrs, b Wisconsin, marr. at 18, parents b Finland
Thomas Shaw 26yrs, b Wisconsin, marr. at 23, parents b Indiana, teacher in public school
Beverly L. Shaw 1yr 10mo
E. Marilyn Shaw 9mo.

They are living with Edith's parents, Charles and Tilda Cannelin.

In the 1910 and 1920 census for Superior, Edith would have been born in 1909. As she was only a few months old in 1910, my guess is that she was born in Superior. On the Wisconsin Rootsweb message board, I found someone willing to look up a birth record for my husband's grandmother born in 1911 as well as his gr-grandparents marriage record in 1910.
Maybe give it a try - Wilma.

SSDI and MN Death Index has Carl Raymond Cannelin 3 Feb 1906-11 Jun 1996. Except on one he's Carl Raymond and on the other Ray. WI Birth Index also shows a Carl G Cannelin born same date. Maybe just a mixup transcribing ???Also found his WWII Enlistment as Carl R Cannelin born 1906, WI, enlisted 5 Jan 1943 in Milwaukee, WI. PVT, 3 yrs high school, married, 69" 126#
US Vets Cemeteries has a Raymond Carl Cannelin same birth and death, interred 14 Jun 1996, Ft Shilling Nat'l Cemetery, sect 11, site 1887.
Antoinette P Cannelin, wife of Raymond Carl, born 24 Nov 1912, died 19 Jul 1997, last known address for both 7601 34th St. Minneapolis, MN. Buried same site. Looks like he switched his name around frequently.
Found an Edith Shaw born 9 Dec 1910 and died Jun 1980 in Beaverton, Washington, OR. SS issued WI. on the SSDI.
There was an Einar Cannelin listed in the phone directory up to 2002 in IL.
