Bernie, Lewis may have been a step-son to Malinda, where the grandchildren
in the 1880 his children ? was he married in 1870 ? looks like one of those
gr kids was born about 1871 ???
If you found a marriage record for this Sam & Malinda in Mercer County it
might help to say why she moved father south to Salina County. Who were her
folks and where were they when she lost her husband ???
Guessing - Guessing or muddying the water.
