Hi Janis:

Almost didn't see this posting-make sure that you post to my message so it sends me a notice or email me direct!!

Here's some information:

Name: Shipley, HazelGertrude
County: Deschutes
Marriage Date: 11 Aug 1918


Here's the listing I found for the same date-should be her husband:

Name: Ensign, ErcelHaywood
County: Deschutes
Marriage Date: 11 Aug 1918

The next marriage:

Name: Shipley, Laura
County: Lane
Marriage Date: 31 Mar 1918

I found this for that date:

Name: Carpenter, FredB
County: Lane
Marriage Date: 31 Mar 1918
This may or may not be her husband-there was another woman listed for this date but not a husband-so one of the dates are wrong-I will check the census to see who her husband was.

Found these two listing on the marriage index:

Name: Shipley, JosephP
County: Multnomah
Marriage Date: 08 Aug 1908

That one had too many spouses to choose from on that date- I will have to look at the census years to verify who is who.
Here's the next entry:
Name: Shipley, JosephPrescott
County: Deschutes
Marriage Date: 19 Mar 1918

Here's the wife that goes with this one:
Name: Anderson, Effie
County: Deschutes
Marriage Date: 19 Mar 1918

Is that your Olivia?

Here's what I found on the death index for the date you gave me:
Name: Shipley, Joe
County: Marion
Death Date: 05 Mar 1958
Certificate: 2925
Spouse: Isabel

Here's hers:

Name: Shipley, Isabella
County: Marion
Death Date: 18 Sep 1958
Certificate: 10600
Spouse: Joseph

Here's what I found for Olivia:

Name: Shipley, Olivia
County: Portland
Death Date: 23 May 1938
Certificate: 1706
Spouse: Joseph

Here's what I found on the 1930 Census for Joseph:

> U.S. Census > 1930 U.S. Federal Census > Oregon > Multnomah > Portland (Districts 271-553) > District 461

Shipley, Joseph P. Rented home/head/male/white/age 57/married/married at 22/born Nebraska/PA/PA/watchman at a laundry
Shipley, Olivia E. wife/female/age 58/married/married at 20/born Michigan/Canada/Michigan

On the 1920 I found this entry:

1920 U.S. Census - Oregon
1920 U.S. Census Oregon Multnomah Portland ED# 8

Shipley, Joe P. lodger/male/white/age 47/divorced/born Nebraska/PA/PA/helperin a cafeteria

It is indexed like this:
Name: Janja Shipley
Age: 47 years
Estimated birth year: 1872
Birthplace: Nebraska
Race: White
Home in 1920: Portland, Multnomah, Oregon
The first name is very difficult to read because it was scribbled over-but this is the same person.

So it looks like the Effie was his first wife, Olivia the 2nd and Isabella the third, after Olivia's death.

What do you think?

Laura
