Ethel made an unhappy marriage which was dissolved in the U.S.A. some time in the 1920’s. She called herself Mrs. Dibdin thereafter, but I believe the children continued with their father’s name. She was musical, played the violin. She became very religious in later life and started and ran a Sunday School – I think Baptist – in her area (in the South). She took a post as housekeeper to a mother and daughter and was with them – latterly only the daughter – until she died. They seem to have thought the world of her and we gathered after her death, when we had letters from the said daughter, that she was very much respected and admired in the district. [14]
