After finding that 1920 city directory I discovered yesterday for my great grandmother Sarah KENNEDY (1898-1930) and her first husband Frank J. WARD (b. 1895), I spent some time looking for additional records on Ward that might provide more information about my great grandmother and her children. I came across Frank Ward’s WWI Draft Registration […]
Did my great grandmother Sarah Kennedy ever divorce her first husband Frank Ward prior to marrying my great grandfather Patrick Flanagan? Sarah and Frank were still living together in 1920, when the first child of Sarah and Patrick was supposedly born.
If and when my great grandmother Sarah Kennedy divorced her first husband before marrying my great grandfather is not clear. She was already pregnant with my grand uncle when she married my great grandfather. And I have not been able to determine which husband is the father of her third son.
This past Sunday afternoon and evening proved to be an extremely productive one for my genealogical journey. In addition to the wedding record that I found for my great-grandparents Patrick Thomas Flanagan, Jr. (c. 1897-1928), and Sarah Kennedy (c. 1898-1930), I also found the wedding record for Sarah’s first marriage.
