Do you know where he lived in America, state, county or city?

Would you have the name of his spouse, what year they married and location?
He took his young son with him after the breakup of his marriage. He worked in Detroit in the car factories also New York as a roofer. He is supposed to have married an actress (unknown). Two of his step/daughter's came to England after WWII.
He was born in Liverpool England in 1878. his son Christopher John Lewis ( my Grandfather ) returned to Liverpool in 1924
Thank you for all those who have replied to this post. The information i need is not on his life in England but when and after he arrived in America. Hope you can help.
