Alfadonna Potter, b. 1921

Here is the marriage license between Alfadonna Potter, age 18,  and Paul Edgar Hughes, age 76. She was from Grand Coulee, Washington and he was from Mason City, Washington. They married in Pend Oreille County, Washington on 3 January 1939.

Grand Coulee Dam was constructed between 1933 and 1942 in Washington; both Mason City and Grand Coulee are towns close to the construction site but Pend Oreille County is the far northeast county in the Evergreen State. I did not find Alfadonna nor Paul in the 1930 or 1940 censuses. But I'll bet they were both in Washington for jobs with the dam construction.

But the vast differences in their ages begs a question:  WHY??????

  1. I think his age is 26 not 76, and that is much closer to her 18
