I found a record of my ggrandmother. It says she was married to a man
named Aaron David Turok. I found another record that says she was
divorced >from a man 2 years later named Izka Turok due to death of
brother. How can this be?

Was it a levirate marriage that occurred after she married Aaron David?
Perhaps neither she nor Izka wanted to be married to each other so they had a
proforma divorce.
