Marie Harris

This is my great grandmother on my father's side.  Her second child Charles is my grandfather.  She lived in the Lancaster, Ohio area all of her life, just like most of the family did.  She had three children with husband Henry prior to their divorce.  Some time after 1920 but before 1940 she was on her own with 3 children.  

I'm still working on that side of the family with a lot to learn.  One thing that I have not learned is what their life was like back in the day.  I can find facts but not much else.  Especially since she was divorced, that was supposed to be a stigma back in the day.  Perhaps, she lived in an area that did not find problems with divorce.  Charles was married 4 times so perhaps people didn't care.  

The search continues.
