  • I found information on Katheryn/Kathryn with her second husband GeorgeHicks before finding her previous background and first marriage.

    With clues from the 1940 census, I was able to find her 1930 censusrecords with her first husband Robert Howard Fulmer in Shreveport,Louisiana.  Robert and Katheryn are living in the home of her parents.

    The second child Robert Fulmer Jr was born in Texas in 1932, so theymust have moved to San Antonio not long after the 1930 census inShreveport.  The facts initially look like Robert died and Katherynmarried George, who adopted her children.  But it appears from SocialSecurity records that Katheryn's first husband Robert Fulmer did notdie before she married George Hicks, but lived until 1970.

    In the 1930 census, it appears that the enumerator understoodKatheryn's (and her daughter's) middle name to be Elberta, thus theinitial E.  In the 1940 census the enumerator made a point to writeout the full middle name (above the first name at an angle) to readclearly as Alberta.  This is the name found in a few famiy genealogiesalso that have detail and documentation.

    In the 1920 census, she is named simply as Alberta.

    Katheryn and Robert must have been divorced not long after moving toSan Antonio from Shreveport where their first child was born.  Thedivorce would have been by about 1835, since the birth of her firstchild with George would indicate a birth date in 1937.

    The date of their divorce is estimated in 1935, based on birth ofRobert and Katheryn's last child in Texas 1932, the 1940 report oftheir presence in San Antonio in 1935 and birth of the first childfrom Katheryn's second marriage about 1937.  The marriage to GeorgeHicks probably occurred about 1936.
