Well, it looks like we may be cousins of some sort!

After looking at your tree though, I believe some of your information is incorrect. The records I have show that Gertrude wed CLIFFORD A. ALEXANDER, son of Nellie Clark and Phillip Alexander (Nellie is my ancestor). I found no record of Gertrude marrying Clifton Alonzo Alexander. Do you have proof of that??

groom's name: Clifford A Alexander
groom's birth date: 1884
groom's age: 24
bride's name: Gertrude M Fisher
bride's birth date: 1892
bride's age: 16
marriage date: 15 Dec 1908
marriage place: Springfield, Hampden, Massachusetts
groom's father's name: Philip B
groom's mother's name: Nellie M Clark
bride's father's name: Francis W
bride's mother's name: Matilda Barber

Who then is the Clifton who died in Mass. around 1968? (I assumed that the "Clifton" in George's obituary was just a spelling error and should have said "Clifford."

The records I found show that Clifford A. Alexander (b 12 Nov 1881) remarried about 1917/1918 to Sylvia Day and move to Calif., where he died in 1945 (I have his obit that confirms he was the son of Phillip and Nellie).

Do you know who adopted Ethel/Eathol?

-----------------------------------------------------
Could this be Gertrude's children, George AND Maurice-? Both are listed as "son," but then George is listed as adopted son in 1930.

This appears to be Clarence/George in 1930. He is listed as "adopted son." There is also a son, Maurice, but he is not listed as adopted.
