Is anyone aware of a scandal concerning Ada Hurd Andrews and John Calvin Burce and her maybe second husband Rufus Lorin Burce. Rufus certainly went to Washington state with her, and the Silas Burce family went to Wisconsin. In our family, we were told that Ada's husband died in the Civil War (at Andersonville, no less, and I found a listing that says he died in a hospital in Pennsylvania in 1864, two months before Susan Ruby was born) and that after the war, she married his brother Rufus. Other members say that John did not die in the war, but took an extended vacation and did not let his wife know he was still alive. When he showed up alive, it was a big scandal and Mary & Rufus moved to Washington & Silas moved to Wiconsin to escape it. The LDS data base is very muddy about these people and even the Tass Tass genealogy lists her under Rufus and says she was the widow of John Calvin, but it does no say that she married Rufus, but I know that she did live with him in Washington.
Sorry I made the story so long, but I would appreciate any insights.
