Eleanore Hill and My Grandfather Al Trizzino WERE MARRIED!

+3 votes
I have found a pretty convincing though short news article that seems to provide a clear statement that the previously mentioned short-lived marriage between Eleanore Hill and Al Trizzino actually occurred between October 1946 and October 1947, at the latest. The article is a list of requested divorces in the Columbus area as seen in the Columbus Dispatch Wednesday, March 19, 1947 edition on page 24. A later article from the same publication dated Friday, August 22, 1947 officially states that the couple had been granted an annulment, although Al Trizzino is listed as Al "Frizzino" instead but it is very clear that this is my grandfather and the woman that could have been my grandmother if things had been different.


Anybody know of a way to document this outside of the biography section of both individuals or is it not even worth documenting as the marriage was barely over six months long?

Ah, I see you did solve the riddle...

Michael, the specific date of the first marriage is at the bottom of the marriage license.

would include the information unless a living family member objects.

Eleanore Hill married first Al Trizzino 23 Oct 1946 in Wayne Co., Indiana. (Cite the marriage license/return)

This marriage was annulled by 22 Aug 1947 when it was reported as such in the Columbus Dispatch. (Cite the newspaper article)

Eleanore Hill then married Henry Canfield 18 Oct 1947 in Franklin Co., Ohio. (Cite the second marriage record.)

In the marriage information you can document date Marriage ended the reason being Annulment.  I wonder why the annulment?

Thanks Rionne,

I was thinking something like that but I wasn't officially sure if people here would want that on profiles. As for the reason why the annulment I am thinking one of two things: 1. Al and Eleanore were romantically involved and then could not maintain that they knew what marriage actually entailed and quickly requested out of it.

2. Eleanor never intended to marry Al as she immediately married  another man less than two months after the annulment was granted.
