In Reply to: Albert E. Brayton by Donald E. Huff of 333

I'm helping a daughter of Elmer Glen Brayton, son of Albert Edward Brayton and Anna Merta Steinhoff. Elmer was b. 2 Nov 1906 in Cloverdale, Sonoma, CA. He md. his first wife appx. 1925-1929; second wife Jeanette McCartney 6 Apr 1939 in Mt. Loma, OR. My goal is to find the name of the first wife.

Elmer is shown on three U.S. censuses: 1930 San Diego, CA doing road construction for the county and listed as single (I figure he was widowed or divorced); 1920 Holbrook, OR age 13 living with his mom, stepdad Bert Wright, and brother Lawrence; 1910 age 3 with his parents/siblings in Bandon, OR.

Are you sure Albert was killed in 1917? I found an Albert Brayton in 1920 lvg in North Bend, OR with wife Nellie. He has the right age and place of birth. Could he have divorced Anna?

Would appreciate a reply asap. Will help you in any way I can as well.
