Robert Walton Hall married Alice Evelyn Bullock
July 15th, 1929, San Diego, California
Robert Walton Hall is my husband’s Uncle. He is the son of Charles Schuyler Hall (1878-1953) & Daisy Fern Bright (1882-1953). Robert is their middle child. An older sister, Dorothy Louise Hall was born in 1905 and a younger brother, Gordon, in 1917. Gordon is my husband’s father.
Alice Evelyn Bullock is the daughter of Commander Charles Herbert Bullock and Josephine Marie Hurton.
I located the following newspaper articles about the wedding & honeymoon on genealogybank.com. The articles were published in the San Diego Union newspaper. One of them included a nice photo of the bride upon returning from their honeymoon.
The newspaper articles indicate the couple was married in San Diego. I wonder why they applied for a marriage license in Yuma, Arizona? Here’s the license I located.
Evidence indicates they divorced before 1940 and both Robert and Alice remarried.
This couple had one son.
While researching for this post I solved a longtime question on Robert Walton Hall’s second marriage. Stay tuned for more on that.

Hmmm, I wonder if they were going to elope for some reason but changed their minds?ReplyDelete
After I published this post, I wondered if perhaps Arizona was a Gretna Green state. Sure enough, it was. So, was there a reason for this couple to go there? Could they use that license and then marry in San Diego? Would they have had to get a license in San Diego too? Unanswered questions. I'll keep digging.Delete
