Hi, I have a William B. Clouse (Clasue?) who married Sarah Elizabeth PURL in prob. Adair or Blatebury, Missouri.
Saraha Elizabeth Purl is listed with five husbands.They are: William B Clause - 6/12/1870 (date of marriage)prob. MO George W. Lester - 1/27/1884 Barney McDonald - 5/9/1918 U. S. G. Quick - 6/16/1919 J. F. Cole - 5/4/1923
I have 4 children for her not sure if these 3 were born before 1884.Charles W., Purl R. & Effie
