Gerturde, Watso & others

Gertrude and Watso married and had at least one Daughter, Alice Augustine.
I believe Watso dated Gertrude at the same time as my father Herbert J. Keel dated Florence (mom).
My parents were married June of 1933, so that should be a close date estimate for these photos.
I would love any info on this family and contact with descendants.
