I'm trying to find information about my grandmother. She and her sister Rose were placed by her father in the Catholic convent in St. Joseph MO because her mother had died. At some point, she was expected to become a nun but she didn't want to do that. She married my grandfather, Frank Severns, who was divorced (I just learned this--was I shocked!).

Of course, she, my grandfather, and my mother are gone. Surprisingly, finding info on my grandfather was easy. Not so with my grandmother--it's almost as if women never existed until the 1960s! LOL.

Thanks for any insight, help, whatever.
