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.
