looking for Aileen B. Evans Murphy

I found out that my grandfather was married to Aileen B. Evans born in 1909 and died 1937.  On my grandfathers marriage license to Catherine E Hall in 1938 and it shows that he was a widower.  My father was born in 1932 so therefore Catherine Hall couldn't be my grandmother.  Looks like Aileen passed away in 1937 and was 28 yrs old.  She is buried in Maryland

There is an Aileen B. Evans who appears in the 1920 US census as born about 1910 in Washington D. C. Father Samuel L Evans  (born 1871 in Pennsylvania) and mother Caroline (born in 1881 Virginia). See https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MNLP-BCX it also shows a sister Violet and a brother Samuel T. Evans.

In the 1910 census she is documented as Ailena B. Evans age 1 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MKLV-KL3 which also shows a brother Chester, as well as Violet and her mother as Carrie B. Evans.

The 1900 census record for her father Samuel Evans shows a mother in law Julia Milton so Aileen's mother's maiden name would have been Caroline Milton https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MMFW-4QF
