    Married 1926  Never Married was pregnant w/Wanda when she & Emery married Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Wanda's father was one Hazel's stepmother Lucy Cox's Brothers. I'm only assuming it was Charles because of the age proximity. The story told to me was Hazel and Emery were in West Virginia and the law made them marry because she was pregnant.
