Sandra Rae Anderson was born on 27 December 1939 in West Union, West Virginia to Raymond and Eleanor Mae (Powell) Anderson. Her parents had married earlier that year but soon after Sandra's birth, her father was out of the picture and her parents divorced. Her mother married Lawrence Russell Hoskinson in 1944 and Sandra used his surname as her maiden name. I do not know if he formally adopted her.
Sandra Rae Hoskinson married Elmer Dixon Tubbs on 27 March 1963 in Skamania County, Washington. They had a daughter about 1964. Sandra Rae divorced Elmer Tubbs on 24 November 1965 in Summit County, Ohio.
On 20 December 1965 Sandra Rae and Van Jeffrey Blankenship applied for a marriage license in Summit County, Ohio. She indicated she had been married twice previously so there was another marriage prior to Elmer Tubbs. She was six years older than Van, lived at the same address -- 148 Willard Street in Akron, Ohio -- and worked as a nurses aid. They did not marry, however, until 8 Jul 1971 in Winchester, Virginia. At the time of their marriage both Sandra Rae and Van were living at 1342 Getz Street in Akron, Ohio.
Sandra and Van divorced two and a half years later. The divorce was finalized on 11 January 1974 in Summit County. Van Jeffrey was granted the divorce decree after proving his wife was grossly neglectful in her duties. According to the divorce decree, they had three children together, but I do not know anything about them.
I lose track of Sandra Rae (Anderson) Tubbs Blankenship after the divorce. My assumption is that she remarried for the fourth time.
