Following her divorce from Buster c1920, Dolly married again. Her second husband was Lewis L. Nessel who had been born in Brussels, Belgium on Aug. 6, 1883. Lewis later became a longshoreman at the Port of San Francisco.
Lewis first married Emma May Coffey, a sister to "Buster." They were married on Aug. 15, 1916 in Clatsop Co., OR. Emma died there on Jan. 20, 1919 and Lewis married Dorothy, the ex-wife of Emma's brother.
Dorothy brought to the marriage at least three of the four children that she and "Buster" had together. They were:
Velma Signett, born Sep. 18, 1913 in Oregon and died Jul. 15, 1993 in Enumclaw, King Co., WA. Dorothy apparently had this child before her marriage to "Buster." The Signett name, I am told*, comes from the fact that some of the family had difficulty with the pronunciation of the Lousignont surname.

The last known child born to "Buster" and Dolly was Harold Franklin. He was born Jul. 22, 1921 in Clatsop Co. and also took the Nessel surname. I am told that he married twice; first to Connie Mifflin** and second to Terry Tryphe. I have no other information on this son. [No photo available to me]
