Notes for Jeanette Blanche ("Jennie") Hale
Jennie and Charles were divorced in 1915. Charlene has a copy of their divorce decree. It states that Charles was the one who sued for divorce, and that the court found in his favor, and granted him custody of 8-year old Wahneta. He, in turn, gave custody to his parents, Adam and Julia, a few months later.
Their grandson Charles Fetheroff says that Jennie moved to Ohio very soon after the divorce. She took work as a secretary, until remarrying four years later.
