Great Grandma Carmella Lewis(1887-1932) or is she?

+4 votes
Hi! I have been working years on finding information about my Great Grandmother Carmella Lewis. I can not find any information on her prior to her first marriage. The only info I have is by word of mouth that she was born in Galveston Texas September 24 1887. She died in Toledo in 1932 and I have records for that and records after 1904 but there is nothing before that recorded. Maybe the hearsay info was wrong but if anyone can advise me where to look I would really appreciate it. I am out of ideas.

Hi Wayne! Thank you for your response! The first record of her is her marriage to William F. Leutshke Gale in Chicago 1904. My great grandfather is Ross Scorziell (Rosario Scorziello born Nov 14th 1893 in Roccadaspide, Salerno, Campania, Italy). I do not have any records of him before his immigration to America in 1909.  I do have relatives of his line that I have discovered from the immigration record and know that on the 1920 census that they were living in South Bend, Indiana. Carmella(head of household) was listed as married but William was not listed there.  Ross is listed on there but his relationship to Carmella( HOH) is brother. (I hope and know that is not true!  LOL! )

She Married Ross in 1921 and there are no divorce records for her and William.  

Again thank you for your response!!!
