Sterling Gazette, 29 Jan. 1910 Page 1 Col. Two:

Eva files Bill for a Legal Seperation, and Filed for Divorce.

9 Dec. 1912 she married, Ethelbert Woodyatt. As Beulah was born 1910, she was at or just months beyond age 2. I wonder if Beulah was raised with the Woodyatt name. I'll include Eva's obit. Beulah might be found by tracking Lyle and Leroy in the following;
