The 1860 Census of the family of John Peasley lists Mary Ann as the wife of John. Marion Huxley who was married the 4th time to Hiram Bristol filed wrote down she was married to 2nd John Peasley according to Hiram’s Civil War pension papers.
Marion Huxley was widowed three times before she married Hiram Bristol. Her marriages are listed below. 1st Marriage: Daniel Welb, who died around 1847 in NY State. 2nd Marriage: John Peasley, who died in 1867 in Spencer Mills, Michigan. 3rd Marriage: Marve Ingram who died in the fall of 1870. 4th Marriage: Hiram Bristol who died on January 26, 1886 in Spencer, Michigan.
Augustus Peasley was the witness to Marion’s filing for Hiram’s pension. Why would Mary Ann Guernsey call herself Marion Huxley? Lack of spelling standardization could explain it. Where in New Hampshire was Joseph Jacob Guernsey born? He stated that he was born in 1768. Nothing is known about his wife Lydia except that she was born in Vermont and that her parents were born in Connecticut state.
