Thank you very much for the info. It seems that Friend and Opal had two sons - EJS and Stephen R Smith(b 1923) who died in 1965 and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. I think Opel was born in 1901 to S A Riblett and Frances (Lumberport), although there is another candidate. There were/are a lot of Riblett in WV, but some sort of family connection (cousins?) is likely. Opal and Friend were married in Kanawha WV in 1920.
Is it possible to find a death record for Marjorie in Pittsburgh (I have got Guy Riblett's from 1958)? That should show who reported the death.
