I am researching the family of Alfred Ivy and his wife Sarah Jane McClelan. He was born 1835 in Arkansas. His first wife was Mary Adaline Colbert (b abt 1837) who he married 10 Mar 1852 in Franklin Co, Arkansas and subsequently divorced because she committed adultery with John Thurston and eloped with him to Cincinatti, Ohio. They had a daughter Lydia Ivy b abt 1856 Franklin Co, Arkansas.
Alfred then married Sarah Jane McClelan (b abt 1842 Arkansas) 17 Sep 1857 in Franklin Co, Arkansas. They appear 1860 and 1870 in Mulberry, Franklin Co, Arkansas. They then relocated to Canyon City, Grants Co, Oregon by the 1880 census. In 1885 a divorce action was filed in Grant County between Alfred or Alford and Sarah J Ivy. Alfred and Sarah had at least 8 children: Henry Ivy b 1859/1860 Josiah or Jonah Ivy b abt 1866 Arizona Ivy b abt 1868 Charles A Ivy b 1869/1870 Susan Ivy b abt 1872 Edie ? Ivy b abt 1873 Sarah A Ivy b abt 1877 Frances "Fanny" Ivy b abt 1879 all these children were born in Arkansas and most if not all in Franklin County, Arkansas.
In the marriages of Grant County, Oregon we find that: IVY, Arizona married A.B. Bowsman (date unknown) IVY, Fanny married Nelse Oglevie (date unknown) IVY, Louisa married Ralph Reiter (date unknown) IVY, Sarah married Walter Snoderly (date unknown)
