« on: Tuesday 27 February 18 19:08 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for any information on Charles Ervin Horner, son of Charles W. Horner and Louise Belle Courtney. Charles Ervin was born September 13, 1914 in Wilmington, Delaware and died June 23, 2000 in Georgetown, Sussex, Delaware. He is buried in the Gracelawn Memorial Park Cemetery. I have no information on a wife or children. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Yes. I was hoping to find a maiden name for Marion and any census records that might show if they had any children.
