I think Mr. Karaszewski was the first husband, as the naturalization records say she married him in Feb. 1954, 3 days after arriving in the US.

I think Russell was the name that she died with, as she is on the Social Security Death Index with it https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JRLB-T3T  A more detailed version of this says her Social Security number was issued in Michigan in 1954.

Also an obituary for her was under that name:  http://obits.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/obit.cgi?Surname=russell%2C+marguerite+o&type=Keyword&Start=50

Thank you very much shellyesq for this information, this gives me something else to go on to continue my search.
I have found the social security record and obits you refer to but still can't find any marriage records for either husband.

I hate to contradict aghadowey but normally BDM records are the responsibility in modern times of:

Births - State
Marriages - County
Deaths - State

Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, New Mexico.


County Clerk's Office

"Bernalillo County Clerk manages voter registration, marriage licenses, property records, and Federal and State elections information for Albuquerque".

I said "U.S. marriages are kept by the individual state" but didn't specify where in any state you can obtain a marriage record. 

Each U.S. state keeps it's own records and there is no overall registry as in some countries. Location of where to obtain vital records in each state does vary. Yes, in N.M. marriage records are a county responsibility but in the state where I was married I can obtain a certificate of that event from either the town clerk or the state office, not at county level.

In Michigan (where the person in question lived) you can obtain marriage records from The State of Michigan Vital Records Office (although corrections to marriage records have to go through the county clerk)-

The naturalization record says she married Raymond Julian Karaszewski at Tucson, Arizona on 8 Feb. 1954.  He was born Detroit, Michigan on 25 Apr. 1933.

This appears to be his burial - http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=104166850&ref=acom  I see California marriage records for him from 1964 & 1970, so I guess they were divorced by then.

A passenger list has him coming to England on a US Navy ship in 1951 as a private first class in the US Air Force.
