Petey's next career should be Detective First Class of the Forensic Records Division. He'll be the lead of a crack team of experts who can find dirt on anybody, anywhere, any time. But, his team can also be used for good to un-earth important facts to aid in research for the benefit of mankind.

I kinda thought it was fake news for a bit, but it's solid. An incredible contribution. You see a different dynamic between Hank and Jane than what other sources would make you believe. Outstanding.

Seaman is confirmed in the marriage certificate and he was born 1907 so this MUST be Jane's husband.

His second first name Kinsinger was verified in my post from Jun 17, 2016.

Please post the divorce announcement in the Jane thread, maybe we have now the final confirmation that Jane and Craig were married twice.
Turns out it's just a notice of the filing. But I'd imagine that most of the time a filing results in a divorce. But this isn't solid evidence of that.

An short update guys:

Today after two !!! fucking years and several reminders from my side the cemetery confirmed that Jane's grave still exists.

So we will go forward now for the plan to create a gravestone in cooperation with Jane's granddaughter Pam and the german Bukowski Society.

Looks like the contract or bill of sale or whatever it is says flat-only anyway (5). Most of the graveyards here in California are all flat markers like that. Don't know why that is, but there you go.

Maybe they don't want us to be reminded of our ultimate fate as we drive past them.

"She was a marvelous fuck." -- C. Bukowski

In seriousness though, maybe something along the lines of "Beloved Wife of Poet C. Bukowski"

Not sure if Linda Lee would appreciate that though.

I also liked that line but then I thought that someone might think that she took off with everything... 😁
But, seriously, both are good!
