Dear Mixed Stock,
Thanks for this message and for the information. It is really the wife of William Gearhart that I am trying to locate. In two census records she listed herself as a widow, but I cannot locate any death or burial record for her husband. So I wonder if it was that old trick of saying widow instead of divorced or separated. I need to get to the Library of Michigan to trace both of them in Detroit City Directories. All of these Detroit directories on Ancestry are incomplete and useless to me - 1932, 1934, 1935, 1936, 1937, 1938, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1953, 1954, 1955, 1957, 1958. I will follow through with Mt. Olivet about a possible burial, although I am not sure the family was Catholic.
