    In the 1930 census for Seattle, a record appears for Victor,Italian-born, and Gwendoline, with her son Edwin Gray.  Note that inthis record, Gwendoline is reported as born in England, as well as herparents.  This appears to be Gwendolyn Hibbs who was previouslymarried to bandleader Earl T Gray, which is supported by Victor'sstepson here named Edwin Gray.  But in the 1920 census for Earl andGwendolyn, she was reported born in Washington, and her father andmother born in Kansas and Missouri, respectively.

    The marriage record for Victor and Gwyn did not turn up till after theabove two 1930 records.  This indicates they had married only inAugust 1929.

    In the 1940 census, a Victor Tomera is reported living in the MissionHotel in San Francisco, working as a Real Estate salesman as before,and married, but with no wife reported with him. At first this seemedto be Victor Tomer, but there is some indication that this is adifferent person.
