Desperatly seeking Nora Arnar, b. probably around 1875-81. Married Calvin Owens Divorced sometime before Jan 31 1901.
Calvin lived in IN, KS, MO.

Have searched all surrounding states of IN for Arner families. NO results. NO results on census for 1900 for Calvin, anywhere in surrounding area.. He was still married by letter in my possession dated 1900, Apr. The letter was addressed to him in Frankton , Madison Co. IN at his grandparents home.
He was not there on Jun 1900 when census was taken.
His mother Elizabeth Owens remarried in Feb 1900 to a John Thompson , could not find this family either.

It was reported that his father died in Kingman KS in 1889, but unable to find his death place. So I have checked there for this family with Calvin and Nora with Elizabeth Owens and siblings, Jesse, Elmer, Sylvia Pearl, and Mattie(Martha).

I have a Journal which records Calvin's marriage to Nora Arnar, and a Photo of her, with the name *Nora Arnar, ex-wife* written on the back.

*** If anyone would like to view this photo in hopes of identifying her as theirs, I would be happy to email it to you***
Please help if you can. I have been searching for this woman a long time. I keep wondering if there is another family out there as he, grandpa, had enough time to produce another family.

I might also add this was a well kept secret in our family even from grandmas family until last year.No one knew except grandma and grandpa that he was married before he married my grandmother.
Thank you for reading this.
