    The Find A Grave memorial has the name Valentine italicized, which isthe Find a Grave convention for showing maiden names.  Her maidenname, however, was Scruggs, and I have not found any indication of amarriage before that to Cosby Appleton.  Several genealogies have amiddle initial of V for Gladys Scruggs. None of these have anydocumentation.  Perhaps Valentine was her middle name.  I have foundno documentation in any official record for a middle name or middleinitial V.  Her obituary and directory listings have her name asGladys V Appleton.
