I do not know Who Nora's Parents are Or when She Married Russell

What I have always been told was(from my Grandmother and a couple family members)

My Grandfather and Grandma Married then later (not sure how long) My Grandfathers Dad married my Grandma's mom and My grandmothers Dad Married My Grandfathers Mom

This is after they were married to each other first. but Others in the family tell me no it wasn't like that Which only confuses me more
