    "Gladys Iva RICE CULPEPPER married a WJ LUKE, Oct 29, 1945 in Harris County, Texas. She retained her name as Gladys Culpepper on all the documents I can find. It was a short lived marriage per Rice relatives I have interviewed. I have not located the divorce decree as of yet. She died a CULPEPPER, so must have returned to her former married name."
