I am researching my husband's GG grandparents - Martha Abbott and Benjamin W. Felton of Christian and Douglas Counties, Missouri.I recently ordered Benjamin's Civil War records and learned that following his death Martha remarried on December 20, 1897. The Douglas County Marriage Book 2, page 13 lists Martha Felton as having married William Hendrix on that date.
From previous information posted on GenForum, marriage records, various census reports, cemetery records, and Martha's widow's pension file, I have compiled the following information:
Benjamin W. Felton (b. July 15, 1845 - d. June 29, 1892) married in Christian Co., MO on November 11, 1866 to Martha Abbott (b. June 15, 1848 - d. November 30, 1899) Children: Laura A. Felton (b. October 9, 1867 - d. December 17, 1907) married in Christian Co., MO on October 15, 1885 to Alfred Green Adams (b. August 6, 1863 - d. January 24, 1962) Ulysses Samuel Felton (b. October 1869 - d. after 1900 census) married in Douglas Co., MO on October 25, 1893 to Nancy Anna Bunyard (b. November 1873 - d. after 1900 census) Diana Felton (b. about 1872 - d. after 1880 census) Emma Felton (b. October 1874 - d. after 1880 census) John W. Felton (b. June 8, 1877 - d. after 1910 census) James R. Felton (b. June 25, 1880 - d. after 1900 census) Melvina Felton (b. September 18, 1885 - d. after July 15, 1892) Girta Felton (b. July 31, 1887 - d. after July 15, 1892) George L. Felton (b. August 31, 1890 - d. after September 18, 1906)
I would be glad to hear from anyone researching this family.
