Forgot to add this:
Doris was a young widow

Doris Alice Wooten and Marvin Summerall were newlyweds when sadly, he was killed in WWII in the "Exercise Tiger at Slapton Sands". It's very interesting to read about.

Marvin Lonnie Williams
Hi Carrie,

Lee, Hendry & Glades county are all next to each other (and in my area). I had been researching the Summerall and Wooten line when I came across the obit for Marvin Lonnie Williams.

To answer your inquiry; I just re-read Marvin's actual newspaper obit published in "The Sun" Belle Glade, FL. It does say he was preceded in death by "wives" (plural): Doris A. (Wooten) Williams and Geraldine (Jackson) Williams.

The following are verified sources that I found (not copied from someone else):

Doris Alice Wooten married Marvin Leon Summerall Sept 10, 1943 in Moore Haven, Glades County, FL

Doris Alice Summerall married Alfred Bernard Kahn Jr. June 27, 1945 in Fort Myers, Lee County, FL

Doris Alice Kahn and Alfred Bernard Kahn Jr were divorced 1950 in Hendry County, FL.

Presumably, Doris and Marvin Lonnie Williams were married after 1950.
Marvin Lonnie Williams and Geraldine Smith were married June 13, 1970 Glades County, FL

Something that you might find interesting is on Lee County Clerk of Court Public Records ( Click on Official Records. The quickest way to view docs is to choose "View Thumbnails" and then choose .jpeg The info shows Marvin Lonnie Williams married Martha Elizabeth Cosden May 10 1944 in Fort Myers, Lee County, FL. (I saw her name elsewhere online as Martha Cosden-Booth…unverified though). One tip about the website is divorces are listed under "Judgement". The divorces must be viewed in person at the clerks office. However, you can still see the cross-party name and date on-line. Hope this makes sense!

Most Sincerely

Jack and Guy Parler
Jack and Guy Parler who lived in Charleston, SC were my godparents. I was christened in 1946 when my family lived in Charleston. My father William H. Eargle, Sr. worked for the Southern Railway. I am trying to find some genealogy records for them.

Were Jack and Guy related to you?

He is my ex husband's GGgrandfather and I went to check out his grave.I had them even look up records at cemetery.His grave, a tree grew up through the middle of it and it's all broken up,so much you can't read the stones,but they decided according to their records that was his grave.All you can get is a picture of the tree and broken stones.It's really a shame because people will never know that is him.I did take a picture for my ex husband and our grandkids.Melony Duncan Herndon McAuley
