Actually my second great grandaunt, Rebecca A Parrish.

She was the daughter of Benjamin Abraham Yeager Parrish and Minerva Hamilton, and younger sister to my great great grandmother, Eada Belle Parrish.

Rebecca was married three times.

Her first marriage was to Ulysses Grant Bond. They were married in Kentucky in 1883.

According to her next marriage record, Rebecca divorced Bond in February 1899. That's what she said on her marriage license in Perry Co., IN when she married Webster Taylor on 28 Nov 1906.

I haven't yet done the research to find out what happened to Webster Taylor.

But on 2 Jun 1910, Rebecca Parrish Bond Taylor was getting married again - this time to James A Shea.

She had shaved a couple of years off her age, and said she had been married once before, a marriage that ended in the death of her spouse in 1892.

I wonder if James Shea knew about Rebecca's previous marriages?

I wonder if he also took some creative license with the "facts" he gave the clerk on this marriage record?

There's a Webster Taylor born Jan 1858 in Indiana in Tobin, Parry, Indiana from the 1860 census through the 1940. 1900 has a wife, Alice, and two adult daughters. Here's Alice's listing at findagrave: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=taylor&GSiman=1&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSst=17&GScnty=853&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=102679647&df=all&

and here's Webster's http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=taylor&GSiman=1&GScid=2160420&GRid=102679348&

In 1900, Webster's listed as widowed. Maybe it just didn't work out between them, or could they have gotten the marriage annulled? Except that doesn't make sense if she's getting married as Rebecca Taylor, does it?

huh, james shea seems to have died not long after their marriage, although his grave (with the same stone) is listed at two cemeteries at findagrave, http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=88243077 and http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=111149626

i do love findagrave; i know you probably already have these, but i'm getting over the flu and loopy, and having fun looking up stuff!

here's ulysses: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=24959603 and his and rebecca's daughter mary is there, too, but rebecca's grave isn't linked.
