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.
