Mary Lorraine Wright, daughter of Lester H. and Sarah (Johnston) Wright

I am looking for a marriage record for Mary. She is my father's niece and was born in Wichita around 1928 or 1929. Her father, Lester Sr., died there in 1939. Mary is on the 1940 census with her widowed mother, listed as age 11. Mary's mother, Sarah, remarried after the death of Lester, to Benjamin F. Dickson, he died May 27, 1950 in the Wichita area**.

** or instead of a marriage record for Mary, perhaps someone could kindly locate the obituary from May 27, 1950 for her step-father, Benjamin Dickson, perhaps Mary's married name is mentioned in it.

It is believed Mary Lorraine married in the Wichita area in the late 1940's but we do not know what her husband's name was. We have been told she died in the late 1950's and was survived by her husband and a couple of children. She is not mentioned in her mother's obituary in 1975.

Her siblings were Donald Dean, who died in 1944; Lester Jr., who died in 1994, Gary Dennis; and twins Larry Dale, and Marlene Gale Wright (married name Clopp).

I am at a loss as to how to continue this search not knowing her married name and it has put this search at a stand still. Can anyone offer any suggestions or assistance?

Thank you!
