I am valiantly trying to find out my great great grandmothers married name and the first name of her first husband, who is my blood line. Rosia Hatfield and a few of her children showed up in Garden City, Finney Kansas in the 1910 census, and she is widowed. Her soon to be husband shows up in Sherlock, Finney Kansas in the 1910 census under Church Sturtevant. They show up in the 1920 census in Butler Kansas as married.
My best guess is that they married closer to 1910 than to 1920, but its really only an educated guess.
I am looking to find a copy of thier marriage certificate or a mention of the marriage in the newspaper, in hopes of getting a hit on Rose's maiden name, or less likely, a hit on who her first husband was and how or where he died? I would assume the marriage would have been in Finney Kansas between 1910 and 1920, closer to 1910.
My name is Shawna King and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any ideas on which way to turn to try and find out this information, please let me know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
