Seeking information on the family of Clyde Edward Leslie, late 19th and 20th cent

Seeking information on the family of Clyde Edward Leslie (1903-1991) in Iowa and maybe Nebraska.

There is something of a mystery surrounding Clyde Leslie and his first wife. According to the Kimball Co., Neb. marriage book, he married Ruth Margaretta Startzer in July, 1928. Kimball Co. is in extreme southwest Nebraska about as far away from Cass Co., IA as you can get and still be in Nebraska.

But did Clyde marry Ruth Startzer? Cass Co., IA Cemetery records have Ruth Margaretta Startzer being buried on July 27, 1930. IF Ruth had married Clyde, why would she have been buried under her maiden name?

To make matters ever more strange, the 1930 census, taken in April, 1930, has
Clyde married to Ruby M. (who is apparently the sister of Ruth) and Clyde and Ruby
are listed with a 6 month old daughter, Eleanor.

Clyde Edward Leslie is a 3 X great grandson of Alexander NEGLEY (1734-1809) of Pittsburgh, PA and would have been my 4th cousin.

This is part of a major project to identify the descendants of Alexander Negley.

Willing to share information.
