246 Desdemona was the daughter of Alfred Bump and Sarah Gleason. She would have been the niece of William Gilbert's 2nd wife Susan Gleason. To date I have not found a marriage record for Desdemona Bump and William E. Gilbert; however, she is named as the wife of William Gilbert in the 1900 and 1910 U. S. Censuses taken in Brimfield, Hampden, MA. William's obituary says he left a wife, not named. The record of Desdemona's marriage in 1915 to Emery Jennings, names her as Desdemona (Bump) Gilbert and indicates it is her second marriage.
