When my mother was 70 years old, she found out that her Dad and my grandfather, Denver Keeney, had been married to Laverne Askin of Beloit Wisconsin for 5 years before he divorced and married my grandmother in 1912. In the 1920's, when she was 36, Laverna married Herbert Kimbrough, Dean of the School of Music of Washington Stage University.
I'd sure like to know more about her. From what I can tell, she had no children, but...maybe? And, it's simply a time of my grandfather's life that is very curious to me, children or not. He was a gentle and kind man, and I can't imagine why he would have divorced, especially back then!! lol.
I do know that Laverna was the daughter of William and Ida Green Askin, born in Michigan. Her uncle was John W. Green of Michigan.
