I ran across an unexpected marriage between John Stanley and Josephine Morris in 1895 in Grayson County. The ceremony was performed by the Justice of the Peace of the 4th Precinct [which I think includes Van Alstyne]
As the family has not spoken of this marriage and Josephine is listed as Josephine Morris, a widow in 1900, I suspect the marriage was of short duration.
I do not know if Mr. Stanley died or if the marriage simply broke up. However, I do suspect that it might be the source of family stories about Josephine once having a home and there being problems.
I would like to know more and would appreciate information.
There is a John Stanley listed in the 4th Precinct in the 1890 Census and I assume this is the man Josephine married. If so, he was a Civil War veteran from Missouri.
