My father Gilbert Percy Welsh was married to Edith Cole between 1920 & 1925.I have found no record of this but family records prove that this is true.Gilbert married Sabara Fitzsimmons in Dec 1927.Edith and Gilbert were not divorced as far as I know however this was a secret, however; My brother Eugene and I recall a vacation we took to Missouri in 1939 and we met Edith in Fort Scott Kansas and she and he signed some papers.I assume that this was a divorce.We were told at the time Edith's daughters were not our reletatives.
