(I was typing this at the same time as the above.)

New York is now pretty well covered for online indexes/records for marriages in that time frame.  Ancestry has indexes for New York State marriages and New York City marriage licenses & records.  There are also free NYC marriage indexes for various years here - https://archive.org/details/nycmarriageindex

Family Search has this database for NYC - https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/2143225  Some of the boroughs have some missing transcriptions for some years in that database, but there are also bride's/groom's indexes covering a similar time frame at www.italiangen.org and www.germangenealogygroup.com.

Puzzling,isn't it?

Just to get back to Sandra's question-could you confirm the years of birth for Violet and Alexander please? A tree on Ancestry gives Violet's as 1914 and Alexander's as 1886 so quite an age difference.

Makes you wonder if either of them were ever in New York at all. Flight of fancy on Violet's part?

Maureen

Thats correct he left his first wife and family for the 21 year old Violet. He was almost 50 Violet and Alexander were born in 1938 in Glasgow :-[
