Samuel Hamblet, Electa Noble marriage -- and divorce?

This is a mystery. Samuel Hamblet of Branch Co., MI, married Electa Noble Dec. 30, 1847 (online marriage records). It seems likely that he was my ancestor, who was known to reside in Branch Co. in 1850. My Sam's first wife, Anna, though, has a death date (source - a family researcher gathering information in Delaware Co., NY, 1960s-70s) of June 1848. And by 1855, my Sam was back in Delaware Co., NY, married again. Electa is thought by descendants to have been born Electa Snow, widow of Joseph Noble, but this Electa appears in Iowa for the 1860 census, with her son. (Electa Snow survived the massacre of her mother and others, but spent some time as a captive of Indians during, I think, the War of 1812.)

Cemetery records might solve or greatly help solve this riddle. Do the transcriptions for Branch Co. contain names and death dates for Joseph Noble, Electa Hamblet, and Anna Hamblet? Would divorces be found in county court records in the late 1840s to early 1850s?

Thanks much for any help, Dori
