In the link to Wilmington Daily Press https://www.newspapers.com/clip/55855003/part-2/
it mentions "Mrs Gerald Mulligan cousin of Gwladys Cowles" I would be very grateful if you could help find the connection.

Kind Regards, Roy

There were a few Mulligan in that family if I remember correctly - Dorothy the wife of Gerald.
A sister in law Virginia Mulligan.  Do any of those names crop up as being a cousin?
