Since Della is listed on that 1910 census as b CO and parents born there, too, did she return to her family to file for a divorce there? Check those divorce records, the court had to attempt to serve papers to her husband and it might give you an idea of where he lived at that time. You just never know what might show up in those records.

Do you know anything about Della's family? Did she live with them until she married? Did she marry in the county where the Bent's lived? I would sure look for that marriage record. By that time period the couple may have had to fill out the "application" we do today. That is the record that has the information such as age, residence, location of birth, names of parents, whether married before etc.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
