Notes for
With Al's parents Norma and Albert T. Hart.
The Cook County, Illinois marriage records show that Albert and Ruth
were married on 27 Sep 1941.


When Mom and Dad went to get their marriage license, they decided to get married on the same day so that no one, (especfially Ruth's parents who did not approve), could try to block the marriage.
They did not tell their children about this until about 60 years later when they realized we might discover the discrepency in dates as part of our research. (ADH Jr)
