James Barry Divorced?


New member

I am trying to trace my Paternal Grandfather with no luck. His name was James Barry and rumour is that he was an American Soldier here in England and he married my Grandma Joan Bellamy in 1942, a year before she gave birth to my father in 1943.
My grandma then went on to marry another man in 1943 after being with him from approx 1945 onwards but there is no information as to where James Barry went.
I have since obtained my grandmas wedding certificate to her second husband and it states that she was the “former wife of James Barry of no home and she obtained a divorce” - why does it say this? Why not just suimply divorced?
I also cannot find anything on James Barry, literally nothing; which could support him being in the American Army? Could he have died in the war?
