Wanetta M. Gardner

I am doing research for my girlfriend on her grandmother, Wanetta M. Gardner. We know that Wanetta had two brothers, Earl L. Gardner born July 13, 1924 in Danforth, ME, and Robert Gardner. We know that she was married previously to someone with the last name Rollins, and in Nov 7, 1947 to John Thomas Wormsley in Bangor, ME.

If anyone has information on this please contact me at tonialmada@yahoo.com
