William Clifford LeMaster's Second Marriage

FamilySearch recently added the statewide index to Colorado marriage records, 1900-1939.  There is no index yet, but by browsing the records I located the second marriage of my paternal great-granduncle, William Clifford LeMaster, whom I've written about before.

Source : "Colorado Statewide Marriage Index, 1900-1939." "FamilySearch" (https://www.familysearch.org).  Division of Vital Statistics, Department of Health.  Colorado State Archives, Denver, Colorado.  FHL microfilm, 106 reels.  Family History Library, Salt Lake City, Utah.

A couple of interesting facts emerged from finding this document.  First, it does confirm that William was remarried, and that the marriage was in Colorado.  Copies of his will had mentioned his wife, Parnell, and that finding was the first I had known of her.  She was the organist in the 1920 census working at the theater that William owned.   Another interesting fact to me is that they were married on July 22, 1921 and by the next July, William was dead.  His cause of death is still unknown, though newspaper reports state he died at Sedalia.  He is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
