I did a little research on the Gertrude A Brown that is the daughter of Weston Brown and Esther Caroline Emerson. Weston died sometime between 1920 and 1930. Esther Caroline remarried William Phineous Pierce. There is an obituary online for William Pierce that mentions his stepchildren.

Gertrude is Gertrude Pierce of Bristol, CT in the obituary. The Connecticut Death Index gives this information:

Name: Gertrude A Pierce
Father's Surname: Brown
Death Date: 20 Mar 1990
Death Place: Bristol, Hartford, Connecticut
Age: 76 Years
Birth Place: Maine
Birth Date: 30 May 1913
Marital Status: Widowed
Spouse: Franc
State File #: 05459
Occupation: HMEMKR
Industry: OWN RES
Education: Primary/Secondary
Residence : Bristol, Hartford, Connecticut
Address: 396 Fall Mountain Rd 060105985

Gertrude and Frank Pierce are in the 1930 Census, married and living in Milo, Maine.

Francis (Frank/Franc) H Pierce also died in CT, so it appears that they were married sometime in 1930 and were married until 1985 when Frank died.

This is why I was interested in more information about Raymond Hill.

There is a Gertrude Brown, born about 1915 on the 1930 Census living in Lynn, MA, listed as the granddaughter of Elmer and Alice Reed. I'll see if I can figure anything else out about her.
