    Notes 
    • Harold was married to Blanche Kingdon Wright on 8 July 1946 in Beaverhead, Montana. Blanche was born 19 December 1910 in Salt Lake City, Utah to George Albert Kingdon and Mary Mamie J. Thomas Kingdon.

      Blanche had previously been married to William Reister Wright on Nov 22, 1930. William Wright and Blanche were divorced before the 1940 census (both Blanches are found in Salt Lake City at her parents in 1940).

      They had had a daughter Blanche Louise Wright 24 May 1934 in San Francisco, California. Louise later married William C. Robinson (son of William A. Anderson) on March 25, 1952 in Carson City, NV. Interestingly, their wedding announcement published by Louise's grandparents the Kingdons in SLC on April 26, 1952 indicates that Louise is the daughter of "Mr. and Mrs. Blanche Kingdon Smith of Pocatello, Idaho". This was, however, just 15 days after Harold's marriage to Verna.

      Blanche Louise Robinson was living in Salt Lake City with 2 children at the time of her mother's death.

      Little is known of Blanche and Harold's marriage, but it did not last and they were later divorced.

      Blanche committed suicide by drowning after jumping into a canal at 276 N. Redwood Road in Salt Lake City on August 14, 1957 at the age of 46. Her headstone (indicates last name Smith), death certificate (indicates divorced), and obituary are available at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=78858424 She is buried in the Salt Lake City cemetery.
