I have to ask when Elaine married Briggs. In the 1940 census, living with her mother and stepfather, is Barbara Briggs, age 2, listed as granddaughter.
I will keep my eye open reading through online newspapers.
I did find the obit for George Hebert. He was born in White River Jct., Vt.
Date: Wednesday, July 23, 1986 Paper: Springfield Union (Springfield, Massachusetts) Page: 39
It lists his wife's maiden name as Violet Bernier (married 42 years), a sister, Elizabeth Trask of Manchester, NH, a grandchild, and three gr-grandchildren.
Burial in the Paucatuck Cemetery.
NO mention of the daughter, Gwendolyn.
The obit says he lived in Springfield, (MA) most of his life, moving to W. Springfield in 1979.
You may want to post this in Grafton County (lebanon,NH) where George & Mildred lived & Windsor County in Vermont where Mildred & Gwen died.
