I am looking for information about my Great Grandfather, Mike Spaulding. His real name was Elmo Allen Spaulding (according to my Grandmothers birth certificate). He married Ethel Hanes about 1918. They were living with her family in the 1920 census in Quanah. He was much older than Ethel (almost twice her age). Looking for a copy of the marriage announcement or record. Why did such a young girl marry a man twice her age? Any info may help open up their world.
