How to find divorce/annulment records
Posted by: Carol Power (ID *****0627) Date: July 13, 2012 at 07:50:30

How can I find divorce/annulment records? G-Grandmother Belle White m. William Edwards 10 Oct 1886 in Portage County, WI (a previously unknown marriage to all family members) - I have a copy of the marriage certificate. It appears that Wm. remarried "abt 1886" so we are trying to find out what happened to the earlier marriage. Her family appears in the 1880 census in Marshfield, WI but she was born in Stearns County, MN and lived in Avon at one time. G-grandmother married again to Elmer Ellsworth Dayton (my g-grandfather) 24 Jan 1893 in MN. Where can we find records pertaining to such an early marriage and it's dissolution??? Hope someone can point me in the right direction to solve this mystery.
