      m. Los Angeles, CA; [Los Angeles Times - 21 May 1936 - Marriage - Los Angeles, California - 1936 - Fonda - Evans - Charles H., 59, 1021 Eighth Court, Hermosa Beach; Lulu, 56, 845 Monterey, Hermosa Beach.]

      According to the 1925 South Dakota Census, they reported that they were married in 1924. However, the Los Angeles Times, on 21 May 1936, published their "Intention to marry". Charles died about 3 weeks later. Different addresses were given for each of them. They were together in the 1930 South Dakota Census, and in the 1934 California Voter Registration. Two possibilities: 1) Perhaps there was some question about the validity of the 1924 marriage, or 2) they had divorced. In either case they presumably wanted to protect Lulu's status prior to Charles' death. (per Shirley York Anderson 2015).
