You a wealth of information! Thank you so much for sharing all of your research!
I am not positive that this is my line- but if it is, Belle Guiles would be my Great Great Grandmother.
Since I do not have a strong hold on this line in terms of certainty, I have not researched Jerry's previous marriage. I would be more than happy to assist in any way that I can with Phoebe Webster.
My Great Grandmother Bertha Prine was born Jan 1890 in Houston, Texas County Missouri. From tracing the census years I had narrowed down the possibilities of her mother to this Belle Prine Guiles. However, according to the marriage records for Texas County, Isabella Reynor married James Prine October 3, 1886.
I did trace Jerry thru the census years and also found that he was a neighbor of the Prines. I do not have a date of death for Belle, James or his mother Elizabeth. Bertha is buried in Salem, Oregon at the Pioneer Cemetery. Her parents are listed as George and Martha-but this information was provided by her second husband who may not have known the family history....and I couldn't find any records of a George and Martha Prine in Texas County that had a Bertha born Jan 1890. Would your will state any facts about the step-children or Belle?
So as you can see I am trying to put all the pieces together-and with your information it may all come together!
Thank you again for writing. I will let you know if I find anything on Phoebe Webster Guiles.
