You probably already have this information, but by 1880, Jesse's first wife, Mattie Sneed, had died and he is listed as a widower. In 1881, he married for the second time to Sarah Coxsey. She was the daughter of John B. Coxsey and his wife, Eliza Jane Fancher, who were also well intrenched in the Osage community. In 1854, Thomas Hampton Fancher, brother to James Fancher and Elizabeth (Carlock) Fancher came to Osage and bought land there. When he left Arkansas, Eliza Jane Fancher, who would have been considered a spinster in those days, stayed behind and married John B Coxsey. Unfortunately, Sarah Coxsey died too in 1888 and Jesse married one more time. Sarah Coxsey's brother, Mike, married Jesse's daughter Belle, by his first wife Mattie Sneed. I have quite a bit on this line, including some photos, if you are interested.
