with sister in law Maria Foley Powell
1940 in Washington D.C. 3614 Park Place, NW with (step)son Joseph, listed as 
mother but I'm fairly sure she is the mother-in-law considering the marriage date
That'st the puzzle, the marriage at Walter Reed Hospital just before Joseph dies. Was 
it a common law marriage solemnized on his deathbed? The marriage certificate, in the 
line "Former marriages" has the same entry for each of the two of them: "One (legal 
ceremony)" so was this a church marriage? The officiant is the Rev. Thomas A. 
Cunningham. So perhaps they married earlier (but note her entry in the 1900 census, 
says it is her 2d marr!)
