John Greeen Gay and Elizabeth Irene Coster

If anyone has any information on "Irene" Coster's family, I would really appreciate it.  From a scan of her marriage license that can be found on this site, I know that Frank Coster was a witness to the marriage.  

From the research I've done on Ancestery.com on "Frank Coster/Costa", it is possible it is her brother and their family emigrated from Portugal/The Azores, but none of that data shows an Elizabeth or Irene in the list of siblings.

Could it be a cousin?  

I would love a starting point with her.  Thank you.

Yes if you find out anything at all, please post it here and let us know. I am glad you are looking into this. ♡

It's driving me crazy.  She's the only one I haven't been able to dig up anything on.  I've even found tons of information on my birth father's family.

Mary, I wanted to let you know that this was a dead-end.  I wasn't able to get anything else here.  I'll just keep looking.

I wonder if she had been married before and that was her married name.

Example: 

Martin Baker Gay Jr. Married an Elizabeth Pachal Dillon. They wrote it as such in announcements etc...however she was married prior to a Dr. Dillon and her actual maiden name was Pachal (was not her middle name)

Elizabeth Irene, maybe she was married before John. I am not sure either ?

Another example Lodowick married a Mary Miller according to the marriage announcement. Truthfully Mary had been married to a Miller who had passed away. Her actual maiden name was "Sweet".

Just thinking or perhaps give a different way to look at it.  Who knows it may not be this way at all, but one never knows either.

Could be; I've seen this type of thing, too.  Her parents were each born in Ireland according to the 1910 census (that was info I didn't have before).  It doesn't help that she went by Lizzie sometimes.
