There was ANOTHER marriage license. One that was NEVER completed. And to another man!!!
The incomplete license was 18 months earlier. Thus the mystery.
While the person the woman did not marry is not an ancestor, she wonders why the first marriage never took place. Thus far we have found this man’s enlistment record for WWII and his Social Security Death Index in 1994. But the years between — nothing.
Was there another marriage for him? One hasn’t been found yet. Who broke the relationship off?
Our researcher just wants to know …
“Why didn’t they get married?”
