Clark H. Foltz and Lilla M. Most marriage record, Vol. 2, pg. 52 dated 12 Oct 1878 is at the Jackson County Courthouse Register of Deeds.
At East Lawn Cemetery in Alma Center, Town of Alma, Jackson County are burials for Lillie, infant daughter of C. H. & L. M. Folts, died 28 Dec 1882. Next lot is J. F. Most died 17 Dec 1902, aged 66 yrs, 8 mos & 27 ds. This must be John F. Most, Lillie's father.
At Oakwood Cemetery, Merrillan, Jackson County, WI there are Folts burials: Timothy folts 12 May 1850-11 Nov 1915; Ada B., daut. of T. G. & A. E. Folts d. 3 Jan 1883 aged 2 yrs & 5 mos. (scarlet fever); Hiram H., son of T. G. & A. E. 1871-1873; Infant son, d. 1 Jan 1893 aged 6 mos & 22 ds; Enos T. son of T. G. & A. E. died 12 Aug 1879. aged 3 yrs.; Addie E. Mather Folts, 7 Dec 1855-4 Apr 1963.
From the early Wisconsin Leader Newspaper dated 25 March 1887, a divorce was granted to Clark H. Folts &. Lilla. An article dated 7 Aug 1887 stated that a granddaughter named Ollie Folts of John Most died 28 July 1887 at Hurley, Wisconsin. Hurley is in Iron County, Wisconsin and possibly this is where Lilla went after the divorce? No other stones for Folts were found in any other cemeteries in Jackson County.
Hope some of this helps.
