Marie Natschke Millard (maiden name unknown) was born in Germany, immigrated about 1895 or 1896 (based on census). By 1900, she had married a man with the last name of Natschke as she had a son, Clarence Natschke born February 26, 1899. By 1910, she was divorced. She remarried Joseph Millard on 3 October 1922 in Arapahoe County, Colorado. License #6722. Source: Colorado Marriages 1858 - 1939 CD. He died in 1927, and she is listed as a widow in 1930.

Marie Millard owned her own home in 1920 at 346 Emerson St., and lived in the home of her late husband Joseph Millard in 1930 at 1315 Delaware St., which was next door to 1305 Delaware, owned by Thomas and Anna Thompson and brother to William J. Thompson. Anna died in 1919 with her only heir being her husband Thomas. When Thomas died in 1930, the home was inherited by his brothers William J. and Frederick J. Thompson. Frederick J. Thompson signed over to William J. his portion of the home for consideration, and in 1930 William Thompson is shown living at 1305 Delaware, next door to Marie Millard. Note - William was also enumerated in Los Angeles, California to whom he was still married but living separately.

William Thompson sold the house at 1305 Delaware St. By 1933 he was living at 346 Emerson St., the house owned by Marie Natschke Millard in 1920. This is where they resided until he died in 1957.
