Clarence and Lillie's Marriage License

Clarence and Lilly’s Marriage License

Notes: Lilly and Issom applied for their marriage license in Barton County, Missouri but they were married in Webb City, Missouri by the justice of the Peace.

Clarence had an affair with a lady named Frieda Powell while he was married to Lilly , Frieda had twin boys by Clarence and their names are Merle and Berle, we don’t know if she gave the boys the last name of Luster or Powell. I am guessing as to the year that they might have been born to around 1928 until 1930? James played with them as a very young boy. Clarence is buried in Friedens Cemetery in St. Louis, Missouri. Clarence died from Adenocarcinoma of Lung, black lung.

    You have a wonderful site. I hope you don’t take offense if I offer you a correction.
    My Grandmother is Goldie Hart. Daughter of Josie Luster. She was born in December 21, 1910 in Missouri. I have known this since childhood. And she died on December 13, 1984, in Bradley, Kankakee co, Illinois. I went to her funeral.

      Thank you for the compliment AND for the correction (I don’t mind a bit). I have the records correct in my Ancestry.com file, but forgot to update them here so I greatly appreciate that 🙂 Are you related through her son, Bill?
