Melinda Yow did remarry here in Pope County to John N. SHANKLE age 67 of Dover township. She is listed as Mrs. Melinda YOU, 40 of Bayliss Township. They married on 04 Apr 1878 by H. S. Taylor, JP Book E page 217 Pope County, Marriages.
In the 1880 census she is in Martin Township Household 150 Malinda Shankle, age 48 NC NC NC, Children are listed (Copied as) COWN (should be YOW) Alfred 22 NC NC NC, Martin L. 19 AR NC NC, Eusephus 7 AR NC NC
John SHANKLE was in his own household age 69 with Levi 24 son NC, Sarah 23 (daughter-in-law)(Levi Shankle married Sarah NANCE on 16 May 1880 Book E page 418)and Benjamine A. 19 NC NC NC. My book for census doesn't tell the marital status, but think the actual census does have this information and should tell you if they are divorced or separated.

I live in Pope County and have about decided that about half of this county came from Stanly Co. NC and are all related. My mother's entire family is from there. She was a FORREST. You can find her father in Stanly Co. with his parents in 1850 census. He was John Caswell Forrest, the son of Jesse and Missouri Forrest. Many of this family still live in Davie County, North Carolina. My grandmother was Sarah Jane V. HATLEY, daughter of William Lovell HATLEY and Eva CARTER, both from Stanly Co. NC. William Lovell HATLEY's parents were Isaac Wiley HATLEY and Sarah E. FURR.
Between the HATLEYs and the FURRs, I think nearly half of Stanly Co. can connect to them!!
