Hi Ada,

Do you know where Adolph was born or where he and Jean were married?

Here is an Adolph Kantola born in 1910 living in Minnesota, in the 1930 census https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/X3DJ-RPZ

and the 1920 census https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MW1N-23R

It looks like the same Adolph died in Minnesota in 1996 according to the Social Security Death Index: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/JL9K-SPP and the Minnesota Death Index: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/V47R-S4X.

If Jean was born in Wisconsin, it wouldn't be much of a stretch for her and Adolph to be married in Minnesota. Your best bet would be to search for them both in the 1940 census to pinpoint a possible place where they were married, and then find a newspaper archive (either online or through microfilm at the area's library) and look for a marriage announcement.
