RE: Mary Darwin Aueilhe
You are quite welcome.

I went ahead and added a link to William I. Richardson's listing, even though there is uncertainty involved. I want to suggest too that it may be that Mary was actually divorced more than once. With the birth date you have provided for her first husband Carlos, there is no possible way he could have reached the age of 90 by 1921. In my own family research I have encountered women that listed themselves as widowed when they were actually divorced to avoid stigma. My husband's great-great grandmother did this, after divorcing her husband in the 1870's. He didn't die till 1911, but she listed herself as a widow in every record we have encountered from the 1870's till her death in 1922.

Perhaps Mary Aveilhe did the same. I have also encountered women who were married more than once being buried under the name of a previous husband. All I can chalk it up to is a greater sense of devotion to that husband; wanting to respect his memory for any possible children involved; or finding it easier (or less expensive) to be buried there. In Mary's case, it was her family's crypt, so I imagine it had more to do with devotion than expense.

In any case, I'm glad I was able to help flesh out her listing. Please let me know if I can do anything else to help. I am not related to her, so if you are and would like to care for her listing, I would be more than happy to transfer it.
