More puzzle pieces, will take some looking on your part.

Looking at the data below, it might be that Ethel M. was really born Ethel M Crossbar or Crosby, daughter of Dexter B Crosby and Emily Thayer. 

And that she married first Jerome Kime and had Walter.  Something happened to Jerome - and Ethel Kime (not Hines) married Frank Fuller. 

Mildred on her marriage record has parents Frank Fuller and Ethel Crossbar or Crossby. 

Walter's records show his parents as Jerome Kime and Ethel Crossbar.

And from yesterdays answers Ethel parents on her marriage cert to Frank listed her parents as DB  Crossxxx  and Emily Thayer.   So it seems to all fit if you take into account typos and transcription errors!

Even more puzzle pieces? 

Looks like Ethel M may have been christened as "Effa Maria"?  And it appears her sister Catharine M. Crosby (Corsby) married John L Newman (Neuman) and their mother Emily is living with Catharine until 1920.
