      Gordon and Dessie filed for divorce in May 1930; final decree was issued 12/9/1930 in Anderson, Madison Co., IN. Minnie d. abt 1963. Also, Gordon may have been married once prior to marrying Dessie Relfe, based on an undated newspaper clipping which states that Dessie filed a complaint to the court protesting that Gordon was still sending letters to his previous wife (not named in the article). - [Ted Smith, via email]

      Additional email from Ted Smith:
      "... a family bible that belong to Gordon lists his first wife as Maggie Evelyn
      Shanefelt (with no y), b. 12 Feb 1906. A search of census records and Find A Grave indicates that her surname was Shaneyfelt. We have not yet located death information for her."
