Notes

ALBERT JAMES GDOVIN was born on 30 April 1901 in Hastings, Cambria County, Pennsylvania, to Mary Larko and George Gdovin Sr. He married (1) EDNA MAY FORD on 9 June 1928 in Trinidad, Las Animas County, Colorado. Edna was born in 1910 to Nettie and James Ford. Albert and Edna had at least three children, a son, Albert Jr., who died in childhood, and two daughters, who were still living as of 2015. Albert and Edna were divorced between 1937-1940 in Denver, Colorado. Edna died in September 1965 in Denver, Colorado. Albert married (2) LOIS LENORE MORRIS on 24 October 1942 in Ayr, Adams County, Nebraska. She was born on 28 March 1920 in Trumbull, Adams County, Nebraska, daughter of Celia Enola Yennie and Edward Benona Morris. Albert and Lois had three children, a daughter and two sons, all of whom were still living as of 2015. Albert was employed as a coal miner near Trinidad, Colorado, and later as a paper hanger, decorator, and painter in Denver. Lois was employed as a teacher and later as a personnel clerk at the Air Reserve Personnel Center in Denver. Albert died on 25 March 1964 in Denver, Colorado, of a cerebrovascular accident (stroke). Lois died on 18 November 2001 in Denver, Colorado, of pancreatic cancer. Source citation: Keith Riggle, "Albert James Gdovin," online, Find A Grave, Memorial #139608923 (http:/www.findagrave.com/cgi-binfg.cgi?page=gr&GRid= 139608923), 17 Nov 2015. Albert and Edna May had different addresses in the 1937 city directory. Lois Gdovin requested a search of their divorce decree from 1900-1939, but the State of Colorado could not find it, so they may have divorced in 1940 before the US census enumeration. Albert lied about his age and neglected to tell Lois about his previous marriage. His age is listed as 31 on his 1942 marriage certificate and 33 on daughter Celia's birth certificate, when he was actually 41 and 43. His marriage to Lois was also listed as his first. Albert distanced himself from his Gdovin family. Lois didn't learn much about them until after his death. According to Edna’s daughter, Alma, Edna never said anything about Albert Gdovin. Divorce just wasn’t talked about in those days. Edna told Alma and Betty that Owen Brown was their new father, although he never formally adopted them. Alma said she met Albert only one time after the divorce, when she was in elementary school. Alma didn’t even know that she had half-siblings. Source: Telephone Conversation, between Keith Riggle and Alma Woods on 20 Mar 2015. RESEARCH NOTES Edna and Albert lived at 3804 Franklin, Denver, Colorado, in the 1930 US census, which was in Enumeration District 246. In the 1940 census, this corresponded to ED 16-286. I searched all images in this district but did not find anyone named Gdovin. 15 Jan 2013 Searched Colorado, Statewide Divorce Index, 1900-1939, https:/familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1TH-1942-33245-5903-96?cc=2043439&wc=M9MV-L2N:n746862356, but did not find a divorce for Albert and Edna. I can think of a few possibilities: 1. They divorced between 1 Jan and 1 Apr 1940 (the date of the US census). This seems unlikely. 2. They were divorced in a different state. If so, which state? Nebraska? Nevada? 3. They were never divorced at all. This seems unlikely. 4. The record or index card was lost. 5. The index card was misfiled. I did search at the beginning of the Gs and also for "God-" and "Good-" but nothing. Celia Riggle said: "I don't know what other state they would have been divorced in.  I do not know who even got the divorce.  In the 1937 Denver city directory Edna and Albert had different addresses.  I wonder if we would be allowed to get Edna and Owen's marriage certificate from the state of Colorado. Since Edna raised her children in the Catholic church I can't believe that she wasn't married legally. I don't think that Dad was ever a resident of Nebraska.  Mom met him in Denver and as far as I know he lived and worked there. The only option seems to be that they were married early in 1940." Source: Email to Keith Riggle dated 16 Jan 2013, "Re: Colorado, Statewide Divorce Index, 1900-1939." She later added that "Gdovin" might have been misspelled. 1 Nov 2015 - Searched Colorado, Divorce Index, 1851-1985, at Ancestry.com but did not find him or Edna. 7 Dec 2015 - Searched Colorado Divorces: 1861-1941 at https:/history.denverlibrary.org/sites/history/files1861-1941_CO_Divorces.pdf but did not find him.
