Thanks to the information you gave me, I discovered the maiden name of John Palmer's wife Swalley) and that of her previous husband, Daniel J. Miller who married her on 23 Jun 1910 in Adrian, Lenawee, MI.The bride was 29 and the groom was . . . . 73!
Because I now know more about him and Mary J., I also know that he wasn't the John C. Palmer who married Wilda Eudora Lones because Mary J. was listed as his first wife, but was married to him when he died.The John C. Palmer married to Lones was living in Youngstown at the same time "our" John C. was living in Fulton Co.
Thank you so much for replying to my post.I have now e-mailed the children and some grandchildren of John's siblings.
I truly thank you for taking the time to answer my post as it has snowballed into a great deal of information.Thank you, thank you, thank you.
