Re: Degans in Kansas

I am researching the Degans/Digans of Kansas. I'm not a descendent, more of an in-law. Anyway, I have read this thread and have a possible answer as to why James W is or is not known as one of Owen Degan's children. I have found an 1865 Census of Atchison that lists Owen (35), wife Susan (22) and daughter Louisa (1). This would mean that Owen and Mary married after 1865. It would also mean that James W (and possibly Ermina) must have been Mary's child from an earlier relationship/marriage. Another answer would be that there were two Owen Degans in Atchison at the time. Either way, I hope you are receiving replies to this thread and that you might be able to enlighten me. Thanks
