I can't locate a birth record for my grandfather, nor can I find a marriage record for Melvin and his first wife who should be Emma CHURCH of New London, Ct. By 1898 Emma is back living in New London, CT. calling herself a widow, however, I know that Melvin was still alive. I have a record of him marrying again in North Attleboro, MA in 1903.
