Trying to find a few more details / confirm some things and I'm not too familiar with USA records...

William Prior Salkeld (Salkeld-51) Born Dec 1 1892 Durham, England, Died Apr 20 1978 Whittier Ca, USA. Was a oilwkr / Mach / toolwkr for Baker Oil and tool in LA at least from '47-'63 and was married to Marjorie J, and they resided in Whittier, CA, USA. I don't know his SSN but believe it could be 551-01-8573 (has wrong, but close birthday, and death date) I believe he immigrated to USA from Canada in about '35, and I don't think they had any children.

Marjorie J Unknown (Unknown-288105) Died Dec 1970 in Whittier, CA, USA (of note, not buried next to William... he is buried next to his mother, not sure where Marjorie is buried) Believe she was born Sept 8 1907 in New York with SSN 082-03-9085.

I had some notes made from a will where beneficiary was Marjories Sister - Mabel Lessing (Unknown 288106), who lived at 2500 Webb Ave, Bronx, NY, USA. I was unsure if that was a married name or not though. Could be Mabel E Lessing b 13 Oct 1912 d 20 Oct 1987, SSN 091-03-9755.

Am I on the right track with these 3 SSN?

Maiden (also middle if there's a way of figuring that out) names for Marjorie and Mabel? (Lessing?)

I also can't seem to locate a marriage certificate (or any marriage info / possible divorce) for William and Marjorie. Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi Matt,

It looks like Marjorie's maiden name was McBrien. There was a Mabel Elaine McBrien Lessing whose father was Richard J. McBrien. On the 1920 census, she had a sister named Marjorie who fits the profile. Here are the Ancestry links:

and

If you don't have Ancestry, let me know and I will send you the citations and information.
