No, not a previous marriage...it was a marriage, after she apparently died. They were both pretty young and I don't think there was another marriage prior. I found him in census': 1870, he is a child of 7 in Jasper Co, IN...thanks for that tip, as it helped me begin the trail. 1880, he is 18 and living with the Edward Moore's family in Tippp. Co. 1900, he's in St. Louis, Mo, married to an Ada for the past 8 yrs and has 3 children 1910-1920, he's still in St. Louis, Mo with Ada. As for my aunt, she's still missing in action.
