McPherson suggested another wife and son Edgar but the 1910 census confirms that they had been married 38 years and it was the only marriage for both. Nathaniel died shortly after that. It seems logical that following Nathaniel's death that Jennie married a Hayes and on her death was buried witih Nathaniel and Minnie.
