According to the 1900 US census for Glaze Co. Miller, Mo. my Great Grandmother Matilda (West) Swisher B:1857 was married in 1899 that county. They did not have any children but the census lists all of Matilda's children as the step children for Elvin L. Wright.
Marriage did not last long and acording to my grandmother, Matilda migrated to South Dakota and passed in 1904.
Elvin Wright married a Serena J. Carpenter later.
I do not know why they married and if they knew each other prior. I do know Matilda had relatives with the last name of Wall in the same area.
Any information would be great
