I see from your Jan 2017 posts that you have a DNA bead on your great-grandfather, Gerald D., as George Dewitt Booth of Ohio (as seen in his WWII draft reg).

The Cleveland city directories have him there as early as 1930 with a wife "Pearl E" working for " Nickel Plate R.R." and then the wife's name changes to "Eleanor" and he's working for "NYC & St L R.R". Was Eleanor's middle name Pearl or was she another wife?

By the way, also found these news items concerning Mildred his daughter:
