Hi I am researching my daughter-in-law's family. I am looking for Ruth C Chandler born ? about 1898? I think. She married Dana P Winchell on 24 Jan 1928 the record said she was from Bangor and he was from Acton. They resided in Acton, Dana remarried in 1944 then again in 1948 so I am not sure if she died or they divorced. I can find no birth(that I can match) or death. Please help? I live in Central Maine and I am not sure where the cemetaries are in Acton area. He passed in 1970 in East Lebanon, Maine.
Maine Old Cemetery Association records say that Dana P. Winchell and Ruth S. Winchell are buried in Maple Grove Cemetery in South Acton. Unfortunately the record gives no dates.
The 1930 census gives Ruth's age as 22, and says that she was born in Massachusetts, her father in Maine, and her mother in Massachusetts.
A Ruth S. Chandler matching this description was living in Bucksport, Maine, in 1910, and in Boston in 1920. She was the daughter of John W. and Myrtle S. Chandler. John was a farmer in 1910, but in 1920 was a mate on a steamship.
Here is the marriage record of John W. Chandler and Myrtle S. Allen: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/N4Z6-K8F
And here is the birth record of their daughter, Ruth Seretha Chandler, b. 23 Apr. 1907 in Boston: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FXJ4-J42
