Surnames: WILSON and COOLEY
Thomas’ DOB: March 26, 1867 in Cordova, Rock Island County, Illinois, the seventh of eight children born to Thomas Phillip Wilson and Sarah Elizabeth Quick.

1880 Federal census finds Thomas living in Deepwater, Henry County, Missouri, with his parents and three of his siblings: Emily P, Goldburn Hiram and Sarah Elizabeth Wilson.

Belle’s DOB: March 20, 1867 in Cherokee, Iowa, the youngest of six children born to John Cooley, Jr. and Caroline Lamp.

1880 Federal census finds Belle living in Silver Dale, Cowley County, Kansas, with her step-father, Joseph Whipple, mother, Caroline (Lamp, Cooley) Whipple, brothers Felix and Charles Cooley, sister Nettie and step brothers, Barton and John B Whipple. Joseph Whipple and Felix Cooley are farmers.

Thomas and Belle married in Silver Dale, Cowley County, Kansas on November 28, 1889.

1900 Federal census finds Thomas and Belle living in Richland Township, Pratt County, Kansas, with their children, Phelix Leotis, Francis Elijah, Sarah Elizabeth, Thomas Carlos, and Opal Genevieve Wilson. Thomas Wilson is farming.

Belle’s DOD: April 14, 1901 in Cullison, Pratt County, Kansas. According to her granddaughter, she died in childbirth.

I'm hoping to find record of Thomas and Belle's marriage. Any help is greatly appreciated! (They are my great grandparents.)

Sincerely,
Cindy Carlson
