"Marie"

I'm looking for a lady named Marie who was living in Wallace, Idaho about 1948/49.I don't know if she was born there or not. Her father was a doctor or a dentist. I do not know her maiden name. My Uncle, Arlo L. White supposedly married her about this time. Arlo was born in Lapwai Idaho in 1930, so I assume she was about his age. They had a child named Rusty or Russell. Arlo was killed in the Korean War on May 18, 1951. Our family would like to get in touch with their son or relatives of Rusty. He would be about 61 years old now. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
This might be your Marie if she didn't re-marry after Arlo's death.

A Marie V. White b. 21 Feb 1931, Last Residence=Nampa, Canyon Co., ID died 11 July 2003. Her soc. sec. # was assigned in Idaho before 1951. Source: Social Security Death Index.

You'll need a copy of her obituary to figure out if this Marie was your Marie. You can find an obituary volunteer at Random Acts Genealogical Kindness. Go to raogk.org, read guidelines, choose Idaho, choose Shoshone Co. and one obit volunteer.

Also the Caldwell Public Library, caldwellweb@fiberpipe.net has an obituary service. Successful Searching!

I'm sure she did remarry as she stopped by Arlo's mother's house in the mid 50's to show her, her grandson. His name was Russell, Russ or Rusty. Thanks for replying!

Hi,
I've thought about this again. If Marie re-married the new husband could have adopted Russell/Rusty and his last name might not be White.

The Censuses end in 1930.

Do you think Russell/Rusty was born in Shoshone Co? You can contact the Idaho Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics.

Then you'd have an exact name, birth date and place. That doesn't help you locate him but that will help to eliminate other Russell/Rusty White's.

Maybe Marie re-married in Shoshone Co. You can contact the Shoshone County Clerk, 700 Bank Street, Wallace 83873, 208-752-1264 and request a copy of her new marriage license. I didn't find it in the index but that doesn't mean it's not there.

However, if you find her new married name, that won't help with locating Russell/Rusty. Wish I had better news for you.
