Hello, I am not related. From what I found, Dora came to meet her husband in the U.S. in 1931. So they MAY HAVE married in Canada? if this was the first time she entered the U.S. Then she was naturalized in 1937. Then it looked like she made a trip to someplace in 1951, and came back from London to New York.

I couldn't find any death info on Dora Raney, so I had a hunch that she may have remarried. I went to the SSDI, and typed in just her first name, and her birth date, and came up with a Dora Kalina. See below as to what I found. Could this be Dora? Was her mother's maiden name something like Wattbonar? If so, Dora was married to Frank Kalina, and they both died in a car-train crash in Minnesota. Hope this helps. RP

Car-train crash kills two in Le Sueur County
By The Associated Press
The deaths of three persons, including two who died in a car-train crash in southern Minnesota Tuesday, has raised the state's 1973 highway toll to 614, compared with 682 a year ago.
The Le Sueur County sheriff's office identified the victims of the crash near Montgomery, Minn., as Frank R. Kalina, 56, driver of the car, and Dora R. Kalina, 67, a passenger.
The accident involving a Chicago & North Western freight train occurred about 8:45 a.m. Tuesday on a county road 2 1/2 miles northeast of Montgomery.
The sheriff's office said it did not know if the dead woman was Kalina's wife or sister.
A deputy said the Kalinas lived at Chula Vista, Calif., during the winter and spent their summers at Lonsdale, Minn.
