Marriage Notes for William Anton Luke and Marguerita C. Mc Iver:
In 1972, just weeks before my father's death; my father received a letter from a Corkery Genealogical firm in Boston. They were locating the heirs to the estate of a Rita Vepreck........my father's mother.
Apparently after leaving my grandfather and father in about 1915(after the death of her infant daughter , my father's baby sister Charlotte [Lottie] May;
Charlotte McIver Luke married a man named Burns.There was one child born from this marriage...and then she left a second time when this child was eight. I talked to this woman at the time of the Corkery settlement and she did not wish to know us or any details of her "other" family. She was a single lady by the name of Ruth Burns. She was a manager of a Wollworths Dept. Store in Woburn(?). Ruth Burns told me over the phone on the one time I talked to her thatshe remembered her mother sewing for her and making beautiful doll clothes for her dolls. Ruth said that her father was in the Navy(?) or a sailor of some sort.
My father's mother then went on to marry a mannamed Vincent Veprek (the family is from New York according to the death notice I have).
Charlotte Mc Iver-Luke-Burns-Veprek is buried next to her last husband in Center Cemeetery in Wrentham, Mass. The grave has a head stone and I do have a photo of it.
Charlotte was also reputed to have been in show business, but have not located any information on this as of yet. There were however several trunks of beaded gowns in the attic of her home when I was there in 1972.
