Ellen McCrea Was Mrs. Beltz Before She Was Mrs. Audley

I knew her as Ellen (McCrea) Audley.  Her sister Mary's obituary of April 10, 1928, identified her as Mrs. Beltz of Chicago.  (Ellen and Mary were the daughters of Isabelle CAMERON McCrea)

United States Census, 1930
Name:     Ellen M Beltz
Event Place:     Waukesha, Waukesha, Wisconsin
Marital Status:     Divorced
Race:     White
Birthplace:     Michigan
Estimated Birth Year:     1883
Relationship to Head of Household:     Lodger
Father's Birthplace:     Canada
Mother's Birthplace:     Michigan
     Household    Gender    Age
    Georgina H Green     F     68
      Ellen M Beltz     F     47
    Minnie Honeyager     F     45

Still haven't identified the first name of Ellen's second husband, Mr. Audley.  I'm hoping the 1940 census will reveal that information next year when it's released.

Thanks, Anon! I knew her as Ellen Audley, but it took me a while to figure out Mr. Audley's first name (it was probably the 1940 census). Cathy
