Looking for descendants of Charles Gillette Bruce and/or Laurel Winefred.

+3 votes
Charles Gillette Bruce (b 1888 Georgia, d 1969 Bradenton, FL) had possession of our family bible when he died. At that time he was married to Laurel Winfred. He'd previously been married to Blanche deWitte (d 1951, Alexandria, VA). I can't find any descendants from either of those marriages or any descendants his 2nd wife may have from a previous marriage. I'm wondering if anyone has either of these unions in their lineage and can help me find our family bible. I'm told it traces my husband's line back many generations. Thanks!

          Thank you - that's the only information I've been able to find on Laurel. I'm not even sure if Winefred is her maiden name. There are very few Winefreds that turn up in a search and none seems to be the right line. I appreciate your response!
          Thanks for this as well.  I belong to Ancestry and have gotten that far as well.  I'm guessing Charles had no children. So it leaves me to find more background on his second wife (Laurel Winefred) to see who might have our bible. I appreciate your help.

          Same name with a different spouse and children in the 1920 census at Famiky Search.

          Blanche (Dewitte) Bruce (abt. 1887 - abt. 1951)

          Margaret L. (Adams) Bruce (abt. 1911 - abt. 1997) Wife of Charles Gillette Bruce (1888 - 1969)

          In the 1920 Census there is a Blanche DeWitte living in Pennsylvania with her parents who are Belgian. She is still single. Need to research further to see which one was married to Charles Bruce. Thanks for the reply.
