Bart Burgess McGonigle, born September 17, 1890 in Cabool, Texas County, MO to John Hamilton and Clinda Francis (Burgess) McGonigle. While living in Algona, Kossuth Co., IA he registered for WWI draft and stated he was married. He is listed in the 1920 Federal Census, in Monona, Clayton Co., IA, living with his mother, and stated he is divorced. The 1930 Federal Census of Monona, Clayton Co., IA has him listed with a wife, Rute (perhaps Ruth)E., age 35. My mother wrote in her diary on July 14, 1941, "Drove to over to Luana. Stopped to see Bart and his wife a few minutes.".
Who were Bart's two wives?
Were John Hamilton and Clinda Francis divorced?
