Marion Alice Morton - Delaware Missing Person Directory
 
She was born Marion Alice Simonds (various minor spelling differences in records but this is the most common) and was divorced at the time (although this does not seem material as she was shown as divorced in the 1930 census). This identification is sound based on her daughter Uula shown as married to Isaac Dolphus Short II. Nor surprisingly her two children are both deceased but one grandchild may still be alive. It is surprising there is not more coverage/information as her son in law (Isaac Short) became a Vice Chancellor (Justice) of the Delaware Court of Chancery (the constitutional court which rules on business matters). So the family were both affluent and connected.
