25 February 1905 Letter from Orpha May Wilson to Robert H. Wilson

This letter is from Orpha to Robert.  They are now married, if you have been following their correspondence. ***They are not together, because Florence, Robert's first wife went to St. Louis, and was probably was wanting to press charges against him, for bigamy***.  The way I heard the story, Orpha did not know that Robert had a wife in the East.  At this time she was also pregnant with my great grandmother.   It is why he made a quick departure to California.    Click here to see more items that relate to St. Louis.  Click here to see more items that relate to Los Angeles.  Click here to see more letters of Orpha's, and Robert.
