bullet  Marriage Notes:

Jane was previously married to ____ Henton. One would expect Jacob to have been previously married, but no evidence of such a marriage or children by an earlier marriage has been found. Indeed, the lack of any previous family may explain why his nephew moved from Shelby County, Indiana to be with him.


Jane next married HENTON.
