    Notes 
    • She married James Fawcett in 1938, had Bobby in 1939 & then had 7 miscarriages in between Jamie in 1942 & Lynn in 1946. (according to Mary Jerrie Lozier Fawcett)

      I can't find any official marriage licenses (except Paul) for all of Aunt Jerrie's marriages but here is a recap to the best of my ability:
      she married Teddy Zielinski about 1949 & divorced him by 1956.
      she remarried James Fawcett & had Tom in 1956 & Jane in 1958; she was with him until at least 1979 (see her sister Juliette's obit)
      then she married Paul Watters on Apr. 5, 1980 in Plymouth, CT (got a copy from the town of Plymouth, CT)
      Aunt Jerrie told me that she married Uncle Jim in New York, married Ted in Baltimore, MD, married Uncle Jim again in New York & married Paul in Plymouth, CT.
      My Aunt Jerrie has been wonderful through this whole genealogy project trying to remember all the details that I ask her about & collecting pictures for me; I know I exhaust her & she gets frustrated at all the questions but she's a real trooper & I've always gotten along well with her.
      When I was growing up, I used to spend a week or so with her every summer because I was very close to my cousin, Lynn, her daughter.
