I don't have newspapers.com sub but apparently the Lexington Herald-Leader of 11 Jun 1933 (page 24) has an item concerning a marriage license for Stella Lumley age 49 of Chicago and David Crockett Caswell aged 76 of Upton.

Your Stella was born Illinois, both parents from Kentucky.

Thanks Shaun. Not sure if this is the same same David C Caswell (1857-1941) Kentucky. He has a bio on Find a Grave but no mention of a second wife.

Interesting to note that at marriage, both Stella and William say they have been married once before, and Stella does not list her parents' names. So quite possible she is not born Collins. In 1930 she gives her age at first marriage as 16 - so there is room there to determine more about her, and maybe records from earlier in her life will give you clues to what happened to her later.

There is a family tree on a pay site that states that Stella married a “Meyers” in 1901.

Could this be “your” Stella?
Cook County, Illinois Marriage Index
Estella Collins, born 1884
Married Gabriel A. Mayer (age 21), 8 Sept 1901, Chicago, Illinois

In 1910, Chicago, living with Robert (born 1858, Pennsylvania) and Elizabeth (born 1864, Ohio) Collins are Ruth and Emma Meyers, granddaughters. Ruth’s and Emma’s father was born Canada, French.

In 1900, Chicago:
Robert Collins, born 1857, Pennsylvania

Stella, born Feb 1884, Illinois

If you look at these records:
Historical Grantor/Grantee Deed Index (1898 to 1933)
Historical Platted Tract Index (Date of Plat to 1986)

 - Stella Lumley transferred this land to Ruth Marshall, July 30 1931, and it looks like Ruth paid $500 for it.  But weirdly, the same land was transferred back to Stella Lumley from Ruth and Lloyd Marshall in February 1932 - this time for a nominal $1. She then in May 1932 again transfers, for a nominal $1, to J A Spalding Co.  I can't find out what the abbreviations mean and whether these were partial transfers or something to do with loans, but it tells you she was definitely around - and using Lumley - in 1932.

Any chance that Ruth Mayer was Ruth Marshall?  I’ve not yet found proof/discounted the possibility.
