Below are the two census that I can find this gentleman. Can you help me? I do not know if he was married to TWO women by the name of Mary F., or if it is the same one. Take a good look at the information for the marriage information on the 1900 census. It is real strange.

(Where it asks how long you have been married, John first put in 19, and then it was over written with an 8. Both (?) of his wives must have been a Mary F.)
