Another says: Married Lulu on 25 October 1900, Exeter, New Hampshire; daughter of Robt. D. & Clara of Exeter [S36:New Hampshire MAR RECS]. I ALSO have his brother (#567- Herbert) as being married to a Lulu Joyce! PLUS s36 says she was 1st married to a Mr. Bowley!!
When I saw this page for the first time on December 16, 2018, the parents line read "PARENTS: #36. George O. (1856 - 11 December 1895) and Ella E. (#903) TREFETHEN". As of this writing, #903 didn't exist, so I revised the parent's line for this page to show "Ella E. Woodard"
