Jim, I found information that I believe tracks my great grandfather, Kemp MARLEY, to yet another state!

All this "fits" our Kemp. Now, for the family he is "boarding" with.

Kemp and his first wife, Malinda Froman, married in Indiana, had a daughter, Fidella. "Della" seems like it could be short for that. Hopefully, we will find more clues to a death cert or something that will tell us if "Kemp" is "Ezra" and who is parents are.
