Mary TYLER granted divorce (1950)
As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 99 (March 1950 - April 1951), in December 1950 Mary E. Tyler was granted a divorce from Harold E. Tyler (case #18587). At the time of the divorce decree, their 2 children, Gayle Wayne Tyler (age 6) and Robert Eugene Tyler (age 5), were staying with their paternal grandparents (Raymond T. Tyler and Vallie Tyler, 1525 Mary Drive, Indianapolis) - they were to stay there until the end of the school year, then custody was to be given to Harold and Mary was to receive reasonable visitation privileges. The children's maternal grandparents, Clarence P. Staggs and Elizabeth Staggs of Parke County, were to have visitation privileges at their home during the summer months and other times through the year as could be arranged.
