I have a weird theory about this one, but it involves a living or possibly living person, so I will send it via personal message.  If anyone else wants to hear it, let me know.

A possible mention of Arzel's divorce from husband #2 John E. Lennon - https://www.newspapers.com/clip/21039426/

I think this is John's burial, as mother Julia is in the same cemetery - https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/172001030/john-e.-lennon

I see an obituary in the Chicago Tribune of 15 Oct. 1978 for John F. McMahon, husband of the late Sarah and burial to be in Holy Sepulchre.  Only siblings, nieces, and nephews appear to be mentioned.

I think this death in Florida may be him:  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VV7Q-3SS  The Social Security death index gives his last residence as Vero Beach, Florida and place of last benefit as Chicago.

It looks like Rufus was getting a divorce from someone else in 1948 prior to his remarriage to Arzel.  https://www.newspapers.com/clip/21038041/

Looks like they may have divorced and remarried, as there is a 1948 marriage record here listing Arzel as Mrs. Arzel Maurice - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9P3R-9J44?i=563&cc=1803985

It looks like Rufus Maurice and Arzel Peables married in Taylor, Texas on 1 Nov. 1937.  It looks like a 1939 & 1941 city directory has them in Abilene, TX.  (That fits with the 1940 census info about where they were in 1935.)  The 1942 city directory has them listed together and with a Mrs. Arzel Maurice at the same address, so maybe there was a marriage issue?

Just a quick note Shellyesq, could you please let me know the details of where you found the information so that I can reference it correctly? This is for a local history book :)

I will PM you.

I was confused about Esperance, WA, because the state of Washington uses the abbreviation WA too.  Too bad he didn't die there, because it probably would have been easier to find an answer.   ;)

He apparently registered for the Civil War draft in Brooklyn in June 1863 as Hope Waddle.  He was age 20 as of 1 Jul. 1863, white, occupation - drugs, unmarried, place of birth - England.  I can't read his residence, but dittoes were used to the address given for a Louis Winterbottom.  Even if Hope got drafted, which he may not have been, it seems like a big leap to go from draftee to colonel in the span of less than two years.  Perhaps he was telling tales to the folks in Australia.

In the 1865 NY state census, Hope M. Wadell appears to be back in Brooklyn as of 7 Jun. 1865, which was shortly after the end of the Civil War.  There is a column on the census for people who are or were in the Army or Navy, and none of these boxes were checked for Hope.
