    Notes 
    • Divorce found in City of Cleveland, County of Cuyahoga OH, Common Pleas, Journal 242, #59138, also #250,160 divorce

      According to the marriage records of Allan Co, IN 1921-25, vol : Andrew and Zelma both resided in Huntington. His occupation is listed as "clerical worker."
      They were married in Ft. Wayne January 26, 1924 by J. Loehamer. They lived in Ft. Wayne and Zelma pursued her career as a professional pianist. Andrew found employment at a steel mill in Cleveland but Zelma declined to move there to be with him because of her career in Ft. Wayne. Andrew filed for divorce December 12, 1925, finalized January 8, 1926.

      NOTE: Andrew was Roman Catholic and Zelma belonged to the Disciples of Christ.

      Daughter Joan Patricia Engel was born May 9, 1924, only four months after their marriage. This must have created quite a stir in Huntington. After the divorce, Zelma and Joan moved from Ft. Wayne back to Huntington to live with Zelma's parents, Charles William and Edith Idema Moyer, (parents of Zelma) on Wilkerson St. In about 1927 CW bought the house at 1306 Byron St.
