The couple could have married in one of the surrounding counties; however, I have been unable to locate a marriage record. Alternatively, they could have been common law married.

    Family 2 Unknown Gagnon,   d. Before 1973 
    Married
    • It is thought that Ida married Mr. Gagnon sometime between her divorce from Charlie Curbow in 1926 and 1939 when she made her social security application in Arizona. Family members believe that Mr. Gagnon was much older than Ida and that they were not married very long before his death. There are no records to date proving who Mr. Gagnon is.
