Many thanks for your reply:
I have the following which means she married Smith ?before 1969.
"Ruth Gregson 85 of 533 State Street born 5th October,1883,died February 10th,1969 in Santa Barbara Hospital.She is survived by a daughter,Mrs Dottie Smith of the same address.Arrangements were made at the McDermott-Crockett Mortuary.She died of cardiac arrest and was in the Santa Barbara Crematorium."
This was supplied by a message board notice in 1999.
I dont know much about how things are done in America would there be probate records?or Wills if she had one?Death certificates do they note anything?
Yes I am wondering whether Dottie(Dot or Ruth) had remarried or she got married to smith outside the Los Angeles area?On USA marriage records or certificates would they have to put their real names?Once again many thanks for your reply.
