Norman Salter Donovan of Alton and Truro

I have him previously married to Lodeema Gratto (d/o Bamford Scott Gratto
and Isabelle A. Singer) who herself was previously married to Philip Joseph
Cormier and after Norman Salter Donovan, married Charles Seymour Cluney.

I have not been able to track down what happened to Lodeema Gratto but have
with her daughter, Helen Blanche Cormier.
