I had not thought about adding the link to my tree. I ordered the Bedford news papers on microfilm hoping to see if Jesse, and his half sister Ida McGee Soyster went to PA from Colorado to their mother's funeral, but it was not in the paper. My cousin has a handwritten account of properties bought and sold she copied out of those "Big Old Books" at the auditors office. His Bennet property was sold in June 1911. I had access to the divorce records in Colorado, and found their daughter's divorces, but did not see one for them. That is a good idea, to start there.
I don't think he left the family, I think he died.
