                       Lillian Pearl Gray
John's Second Wife

Lillian Pearl Gray

Lillian Gray
         Forest bar
            The Phoebus paper, dated Sunday, Dec 12, 1915 had an entry entitled: Bride of a Veteran 
            "John Dolphin, 66 years old, a member of the National Soldiers' Home and 
            Miss Pearl Greene, 22 years old, of Phoebus, were yesterday granted a license
            to marry by Clerk of Courts, Harry H. Holt.  The wedding took place in Phoebus,
            the ceremony being performed by the Rev. L.T. McLane of the Methodist church."

            Note that Greene should be Gray.  Also, the age of John is suspect in this artical.
            John should actually be about 74 years old.

            Wife2: Lillian Pearl Gray
            born: Jul 20, 1894/95?    place: Isle of Wight, VA. 
            marr: Dec 12, 1915        place: Phoebus, Virginia
            Child of John and Lillian
            #1 John Wesley Dolphin
               born: June 22, 1917    place: Sawtelle, CA  
               died: 1982       
            Note: It is not known for certain if this child was the son of John Dolphin 
            or Frank Ervin.  Apparently she never officially divorced John Dolphin,
            but is said to have had a relationship with Frank Ervin. 

            The birth certificate has the child's name as John Wesley "Dolphin".
            However, Frank Ervin raised the boy as John Wesley Ervin.  
            Thus there is the question of the true biological father.

            Margaret Miller
John's third Wife

            Wife3: Margaret Louise Miller / Santonge / Dolphin
            born: Mar 04,1859         place: Keokuk?, Iowa
            marr: Jun 29,1922         place: Redondo Beach, Los Angeles Co,CA
            died: Jan 31,1948         place: Los Angeles, CA
            parents: Wm. E. Miller and Mary A. Garey  - they were from Missouri.

            Previous Husband: Joseph Santonge (Widowed)
                        died: June 30, 1911 (Civil War Vet)
            occupation: Listed as Nurse.
            Declaration for Widows' Pension listed birth date of Margaret. There also appears to be a note
            that she was previously married to an Albert Lee Fuller. No mention of Joseph Santonge. This is 
            the only document I've seen this name listed. Also on this document, although faded, it kind of
            looks like her birth place could be "Keokuck, Iowa". Iowa is clear, but town or county is faded.
            Also note on marriage application witness' name is Van Santongue (note the 'gue' ending) who 
            resided in Las Vegas, NV.
            Note: Received death date from another genealogist quoting CA death index entry.  Also on this
            index, quoted 1857 as birth date. I had 1859 based on pension records. - Need verification.
