I swear it has a D in the marriage column on the 1910.
1910 Pleasant Ridge, Fulton County
Shoemate, William F 68 md 10 yrs
----------- Martha E. 39 had 0 children
Johnson, Maybell 7 lodger
It's hard to tell if it shows md 2 times or not but I think that is what is
Her's is md 1 time.
He was 37 in 1880 add 30 = 67 - age fits.
I think before I said something about him being married for 15 years. I was
mistaken on that. His son William would have been about 13 he could have
been in the house of his father in the 1900 census. Maybe moved when his
father remarried ???
A lot of ex wives would rather be known as a widow in those times. More than
once I've been thrown by the widow bit.Looks like he went after the younger
woman. Didn't find any Shoemate marrriages in Baxter County.
