I am looking for the marriage record of John Thomas Steele and Kizzie America Farmer which, I believe, took place in Washington co, AR ca 1882. John and his father John Wesley Steele, moved to Washington co, AR, after the father's divorce during the Civil War. Their Missouri relatives were able to keep some contact with them for awhile and learned that both had married and had new families, but eventually all contact was lost. According to the family lore, John Wesley remarried and had three daughters by his new wife. I would love to find his marriage record as well, but I think he did a pretty good job of 'laying low' after his divorce as his wife was awarded alimony but could never get him to pay up. I've never been able to find him in Washington co census records or any other records in the area. Perhaps he used an assumed name. Any info on either of them would be greatly appreciated.
