James Arthur (1st Husband)
Robert Lawrence (2nd Husband)
My grandmother's parents were Harold & Stella Mae. They also had Phyllis, Hazel, Greta, Verla, Harold, Jr., Dorothy & Larry.
The one I find the most interesting was Greta's husband's name. His parents wanted to name him after his dad, but rather than name him William Jr. They just named him Junior. As a teenager, his mates nicknamed him "Dude" and it stuck, so to me he's always been Uncle Dude.
Frederica Elizabeth (she went by Freida)
Freida later married Jack, while George married Esme. IDK much about Nan's side, but Granddad's mum's name was Margery, called Margie.
