William J Griffith Divorce/Adoption

Classification: Query
My great grandfather was William J Griffith (went by Jack), son of John Griffith and Sarah Spurgeon. I believe his third and final marriage was to my great grandma, Edna Hayes. Prior to that, it looks like he was married twice, both in Kankakee County: first to Minnie Hoffman on July 3, 1904, and then to Sophie Hazelman (also seen her name as Hasselman) on June 18, 1907. I can't find any info on what happened to Minne, if they divorced or she died. He did apparently divorce Sophie, as she went on to marry Michael Wright. William and Sophie had three children together: Minne, Stella, and Elsie. The three girls eventually married, but not with Griffith as their maiden name, so not sure if they were adopted (one went by her mom's maiden name, one by her step-dad's). Anyone know of where I can find more information to figure out his family prior to marrying my great grandma?
