I am trying to locate the divorce record for Samuel John Akins and Ziska "Sally" Eilene Higdon 1938-1943 or even an announcement of divorce in the Boulder paper - unfortunately I don't have an exact date!How was guardianship handled for the two children.
The marriage license for Samuel John Akins second marriage did not list divorce information.
Any answers would be appreciated.
