I am trying to find out info on one of my grandmother's brothers. He is the son of Gerald S Curtis & his second wife (Ellen)Ada Dodge, she was the daughter of Walter Phelps Dodge.The son's name was Gerald Curtis but I don't know if he had a middle initial.They were married in 1909 and divorced sometime before 1917 when she remarried to William R Purnell who became a Rear Admiral I believe in the Navy.All I know about the son is his name, that he left with his mother when they divorced, & that he was murdered possibly in California in the 30's.From what I've heard he may have been involved with gangsters & drugs. He died violently, possibly in a car.I can't find anything about his death on the internet & my grandmother is positive it was in the papers. Ada Dodge was from Symsbury, CT.Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!
