    Family genealogies report two marriages and divorces from John RussellJones.

    I found two divorce records dated about 2 years apart that appear tobe for the same couple, but with two different marriage dates, thesame day one year apart, 1943 and 1944.  Both marriages have twochildren.  Both the divorce records are in Tarrant County.  I do notfind a divorce record to match the marriage record in Hood County.The Hood County marriage record is dated 10 November 1970. Is this athird marriage to John Jones?  Or is one of the two in 1943-1944erroneous?

    The following index records have details of the same persons for twodifferent marriage dates, 11 November 1943 and 11 November 1944, withtwo different respective divorce dates, 20 November 1969 and 8 July1971.  But the marriage periods overlap.  An additional marriagerecord dated 10 November 1970 is also found .
