She and Charles divorced before/about 1917.
Charles shows remarried in 1920 to his 2nd wife. In 1930, his 2nd wife shows that they had been married about 13 years.

---

Her final husband was Percival Racine Bettison.
The year of marriage is still being sought.

Percy, as he was called, shows being married in 1917 on his World War 1 Draft Registration. The document does not give his wife's name, however. Location: Kansas City, Missouri, however, on the bottom right of document below his signature was written: Beaver Falls, Pa. and then, Cork? Co.

Percy worked for the railroads and traveled extensively.
Locations found: Kentucky, Florida, Tennessee, Hong Kong, Keelung (Taiwan), Shanghai (China), Nagasaki (Japan), Kobe (Japan), Yokohama (Japan), California, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Disctrict of Columbia, New York .....

This traveling may explain why their location in 1920 has not yet been found. She is found from 1930 until her death in 1948 in Detroit, Michigan. She shows as married on the 1930 and 1940 census but Percy is not with her. He was in Washington, DC in 1936 and in Brooklyn in 1942.

Percival died in 1947.
