      I have a similar problem, only the children were born out of wedlock.  I can tell you one thing I know for certain.  During that time in our history, the women who had children out of wedlock we shuned as were their children.  They were outcasts in a lot of cases so the women lied to protect their children and themselves.  I think that sometimes they even believed the lie.
      I am not saying that this is the case with you relatives, but it is a possibility.
      Not much help, but something to think about.

      You all have helped me so much. I first want to again say thank you.

      I need some advice on how I could possibly figure this out.

      My grandmother' s last name was Lubinski which seemed to be a mystery for the whole family. I do know she (Margaret Lubinski) was born May 1, 1927 and baptised May 15, 1927 in Passaic, NJ. Her baptism info lists her father as "Stanley" no last name. So we all assume her father's name was Stanley Lubinski. But none of my great grandmother' s family remembers her marrying anyone before she married a Peter Woch in 1937. So then we all thought maybe my grandmother was born out of wedlock. According to 1930 census she lived with her grandparents in Old Forge.

      BUT!!! here is why I am now further confused. An engagement announcement from 1941 states "Margaret Lubinski" (my grandmother) daughter of "Wanda Lubinski Woch"from Morris Run. Wanda's birth name was Zukoski, so therefore this tells me that maybe she was married previously. How could I check? This period falls between the 1920 census and 1930 census. I know this is confusing to explain. Does anyone have any ideas?
