I am trying to locate information on my grandfather's first wife. Here's what I have:
Frank B. Waters was a boarder in the home of Mrs. A. Schroeder and Mrs. Bessie Spears in 1911 in Jacksonville, FL. He and Bessie were married in 1912 in Jacksonville. They divorced about 1921. I'm trying to learn more about the identify of Bessie. I believe her legal name was Elizabeth. What was her maiden name? Who was her first husband. How did the marriage end -- death, divorce?? Who is Mrs. Schroeder? Any relationship to Bessie?
I can't find Bessie in the 1920 census. There is an Elizabeth Waters in the 1930 census who might be her. Her place of birth is listed as Alabama.
I have Frank in the 1910 Census, listed in Jacksonville, FL. I can't find Bessie in either Florida or Alabama.
