    Vivan and E\ldridge divorced some time after the birht oif Venita's birth in January 1935 and before the 1940 census.

    In 1940 Vivian and her daughter Venita (spelled Veneta here) are enumerated in the household of Vivian's parents.  Vivian  is not reported divorced, but there is husband in the household.  From other sources we known eldridge later married again.  The box for Vivian's marital status has only the number 7.  From the report of locations in 1935, it appears that Venita was born in Ft Worth, while we are told her mother was living in Ardmore (Carter County), Oklahoma.
