Re: Edward Albert Law [Willigar related]

Steve,

You probably already know this, but Joyce Eileen Law married Chester Wade Hilton on 14-Sep-1947 in Los Angeles Co., California.  Chester's headstone on FindAGrave lists his dates of birth & death.

1)  California Marriage Registration (LDS site)
Chester Wade Hilton, 25, res of Alhambra, born in Kentucky, s/o James F. Hilton, born Kentucky & Goldie Crow__er, born Kentucky, was married on 14-Sep-1947 in Los Angeles Co. to Joyce Eileen Law, 22, res of Alhambra, born Michigan, d/o Edward Albert Law, born Canada & Hazel Mae (Derr?) born Michigan

2)  Photo of headstone from Riverside National Cemetery, Riverside, Calif. on FindAGrave:
Chester Wade Hilton
SSGT USA World War II
Nov 11, 1921 - Feb 1, 2013
Bronze Star Medal

They had 2 children (Cynthia Diane Hilton & Stacey Ann Hilton) - I won't post their birth dates because they're probably still living.

Thanks Gerry
Joyce appears to be the only grandchild in the David Law / Abigail Willigar family.

Steve,

Thank you for your MANY recent postings for Law descendants.

One small point:  The marriage reg. for Edward Albert Law lists his wife as Hazel Mae Dorr.  Her Michigan Birth Registration(s) list her maiden name as Derr as does the 1910 census and possibly the marr. reg. for her daughter.

Two Michigan Birth Registrations (images on LDS)
1)  Hazel Derr, b Feb 16, 1896* in Alpena, d/o Arthur Derr (b Iowa) & Maggie Derr (b Penn.)
2)  Hazle Derr, b Feb 17, 1897 in Alpena, d/o Arthur Derr (b Iowa) & Maggie Derr (b Penn.)
*  This was registered AFTER Sep, June & Oct 1896 births - should this be 1897?

1910 - York, Washtenaw Co., Mich.
  Authur Derr (47) b Iowa
  Maggie Derr (43) b Pennsylvania
  & 4 children, including Hazel Derr (13) b Mich.

California Marriage Registration for her dau.:
Chester Wade Hilton, 25, res of Alhambra, born in Kentucky, s/o James F. Hilton, born Kentucky & Goldie Crow__er, born Kentucky, was married on 14-Sep-1947 in Los Angeles Co. to Joyce Eileen Law, 22, res of Alhambra, born Michigan, d/o Edward Albert Law, born Canada & Hazel Mae (Derr?) born Michigan
