"John Married Sarah Jane Mosteller in 1894 at the age of 40. Sarah was 33. I was told that Sarah was married before John and apparently her husband died, John then raised those children. It is possible John was also married before he married Sarah since he was 40 when they married but I'm unable to find out information on either.
