Surnames: Southard - England - Wright - Toole - Harris
New Madrid Co., MO marriage records show that R.E. Southard married Lillie England on 10 Mar 1912. Robert Ephron Southard was born on 3 Feb 1892 in Fredonia (Caldwell Co.), KY, the son of Brice and Jennie Southard

Here is where Robert Ephron Southard is buried - I don't know where Lillie (England) Southard is buried?;

The following shows that Jean Esther Southard is called "Mary E" in the 1920 Census.

Believe that Lillie Southard married Richard Ell Wright in 1937 in Caruthersville, Pemiscot, Missouri - but the Marriage Record stated that there home was in Kennett, Missouri. She states that she is married in the following 1940 Census but they probably divorced since Richard Ell Wright does not die until 1963. NEEDS TO BE DOCUMENTED. Anyone out there that can give me more information on Richard Ell Wright? Who he married, or divorced? Did Richard Ell Wright have children and who were his father and mother?

And yes I do believe that this is the marriage record of Jean Esther (Southard) Crader Wright Chipman. But I can not find them in the Census or anything else about them. They also might have split up?
