Research Notes

I have some confusion with his first wife Pearl. Divorce record from Calhoun County, Michigan show that they were divorced on 2 Jun 1919. Seems she didn't wait for the final action as a marriage record was found for Pearl Barnes (daughter of Daniel Barnes and Elizabeth Alexander) & Earl Roseberry on 14 Mar 1919 in Des Moines, Burlington, Iowa (Iowa, Marriage Records, 1880-1937 & Iowa, Select Marriages Index, 1758-1996 FHL Film#1547822 Ref ID 2:3HJSCC8)

There is a Lewis Lamb, age 26, born in Michigan, living in Newark Ward 2, Essex, New Jersey in the 1910 Census. He's working as an engineer in the telephone industry. Not sure if it is the correct Lewis or not.

There is a FAG Memorial 25859288 but there is not a headstone photo or any other info.
