    • On November 15, 2016, in an email to Ted Smith and Chris Sackett, Thurmon King wrote:

      For the wife/wives of Adelbert Covell, there are some confusing records, especially the two marriage records given below. The first record is dated 27 Mar 1889 to Luella Goetzman while the second record is dated 6 May 1889 to Minnie Thompson. Both records give the same parents to both women:
      Spouse's Father's Name: William Thompson
      Spouse's Mother's Name: Mahala Kerkendall

      However, the 27 Mar 1889 marriage record has the name of his wife as Luella Goetzman. The birth records for their children give her maiden name as Goetzman.

      Maybe Ancestry.com will have something that will clear up the confusion.

      =====================

      Indeed, as Ted Smith discovered on Ancestry.com, the information was confusing. It appears that there is an error in the marriage databases, because Winnie is reported as having married two men on the same day:

      Iowa, Select Marriages, 1851-1900
      Name: Moses Martin Linder
      Gender: Male
      Spouse: Winnie Thompson
      Marriage Date: 6 May 1889
      County: Boone
      State: Iowa

      The 1900 census helps make it clear that Winnie married Martin Linder, and two birth records after 1889 make it clear that Adelbert Covell married Jennie Luella Getsma, not Winnie Thompson:

      1900 Census
      Name: Martin M Linder
      [Martin N Linder]
      Age: 33
      Birth Date: Oct 1866
      Birthplace: Illinois
      Home in 1900: Pilot Mound, Boone, Iowa
      Race: White
      Gender: Male
      Relation to Head of House: Head
      Marital Status: Married
      Spouse's Name: Winne Linder
      Marriage Year: 1889
      Years Married: 11
      Father's Birthplace: Sweden
      Mother's Birthplace: Sweden
      Occupation: View on Image

      Martin M Linder 33
      Winne Linder 32
      Earl L Linder 9
      Grace I Linder 7
      Elsie A Linder 4

      Cook County, Illinois, Birth Certificates Index, 1871-1922
      Name: Genevieve Covell
      Birth Date: 2 Nov 1891
      Birth Place: La Grange, Cook, Illinois
      Gender: Female
      Father: Adelbert M Covell
      Mother: Luella Jane Goetzman Covell
      FHL Film Number: 1287792


      Iowa, Births and Christenings Index, 1800-1999
      Name: Homer G Covell
      Birth Date: 28 Mar 1903
      Birth Place: Jackson Township, Guthrie County, Iowa, United States
      Father: Adelbert M Covell
      Mother: Jennie Luella Getsman
      FHL Film Number: 1651851

      Thus, we have concluded that Winnie Thompson did not marry a Sackett. We have included her here so that anyone who searches for her in the database will find this information and benefit from our research.
