Looking for Ida Grinspan #usa

sid & sue


ISO Ida Grinspan, second wife of my Grandfather; Ralph Nemzer b. Vilna 1888-d. Los Angeles 1956. The only reference I have of Ida is Marriages Notice in the Washington DC Evening Star newspaper of 3 November 1942; "Ida Grinspan, 54, 837 26th st. s.w."
Maybe: born in Vilna; divorced Maryland area c.1948? Can 1940 census be searched by address?

The Becker's Email

In reply to Sherri Bobish's 1940 census:
The Evening Star  11 Dec. 1940 lists Max Greenspun age 65 in the listing of deaths on p. 8.  source:  newspapers.com
Therefore, this Ida Greenspun would have likely been a widow in 1942.

The 1940 address is 2700 N nw, Washington,  DC.  I found this Max and Ida Greenspon at this address in DC city directories as early as 1932.
