Walter Ewers marriages...
I created a memorial (#158356585) for Leonora Holt in the Portales, NM, cemetery in Feb. 2016, since there was a grave marker for her, but no Find A Grave Memorial

I was recently sent the following in a message:

Corrections for Leonora Holt
I've submitted a correction for her name. As I've found her Social Security Application information on & it shows her maiden name as Payne & she was married 1st her husband with the Surname McAnalley. Her 2nd husband was Walter Crockett Ewers b29 July 1921 in Erath county, Texas, & her 3rd husband was the one with the Surname Holt. Ewers have a connection to my family tree through my 4th great Aunt Frances Reynold Allcock who married Joseph Ewers & Walter is a 4th Cousin 1x removed from me. He was 1st Married to Morna Leonora Payne on 13 June 1942 in Miller county, Arkansas & then to his 2nd wife Cleta L Droke on 21 December 1946, in New Mexico. I've also submitted a link to his Find A Grave Memorial. I'll submit other links or corrections for siblings, spouses, etc, As I come across them.

I found an article about Walter's and Cleta's wedding on

IF, Leonora was married to Walter before he married Cleta, it would have been a short marriage. Do you have any information about Walter being married before he married Cleta?

My surname is 'McAnelly,' so I am curious about her being married to a 'McAnalley.'

My Find A Grave # is 48822065.
