Good Morning!
Just as info, just did a search of Marshall Co IL Deaths ... found
something interesting? Geo Wise, Sr. supposedly died Oct 9, 1872, at
Wenona, aged 80 years ... burial on Oct. 17, 1872. Unable to get a
cemetery name. No mention of his wife's burial.
However, their search engine states: Marshall County Obituaries and
Death Notices: He has been a resident of this county for 13 years.
George WISE, Sr. Oct 17, Wenona, Oct. 9, George Wise, Sr., aged 80
years ... He was married to Margarent Henslee of Licking county ..."
A second marriage to a woman with the same first name? Wouldn't be
the first time! Guess that only adds to the confusion ...
