Thanks Linda for your information and all your hard work. My cousin in Canada apparently has the marriage certificate of Lydia and William and she is going to mail a copy to me as she does not use a computer. One of her younger sisters is in contact with me and I am getting this information second hand. I really appreciate you insight into divorce during that time, that may answer many questions. According to the birth certificate on Emengard her mother and father are William and Lydia. I have not personally seen the certificate but I am being told by her grandchildren they have a copy. It seems so strange all of the convoluted stories about what went on way back then! Quite mysterious I find.
Again my special thanks for all your help, it really has cleared up some issues for me.
