From online research, hopefully correct:
Geneva M. Branch was born about 1911 in Waterville, Maine, the daughter of Chester Arthur Branch and his wife Lena (Richards, I think) Branch of Waterville, Maine. Her paternal grandparents were Winthrop M. and Emma (Hodges) Branch. I haven't yet learned the names of the parents of Geneva's mother Lena, or if indeed Richards was her maiden name. Geneva had a sister, Barbara, who was born in 1912. She married William A. Chase in 1964.
Geneva M. Branch married Erroll P. Libby or Saint Albans, Maine, on 2 July 1932. He was born 27 April 1909, the son of Chester Ellery Libby and his wife Susie E. (Emery) Libby.
Sadly, Geneva died in 1938; I'm not sure if she and Erroll had any children. Erroll P. Libby married a second time in 1939, to Leona Sitnik.
