I didn't know about the website for my mother's family. Interesting. I doubt the German marriage. I have seen it on Ancestry as well and it is total user input, no documents to back it up. I think someone got frustrated and input BS just because they could. I find that a fair amount on the individual profiles.
I couldn't read the will, so didn't know what it said.
It almost makes sense that he left, she filed for divorce when she didn't hear from him awhile and then maybe he made good and didn't realize he was no longer her husband? Well, almost makes sense. The family has some quirks, I know them and am one of them I guess.
In this family they only remarried when one of the partners died. Strong Primitive Baptists, hell fire and brimstone. This is the ONLY divorce I know of in the family. My grandfather married for 3rd time when he was old, never divorded as far as I know, they just quit living together. I will look at all of your research and see where it leads.
When we don't know the surname, do we enter UNKNOWN or just leave it blank? Whis is the preferred route?
