My great-grandmother was Harriet Giesler dau. of Mary Margaret Ann Riley's first husband David Giesler.
After David died in 1863, Mary married Hanse Arrants in 1869, according to our records, they had two children, Leander & Molly. In my recent research I have discovered the possibility that Leander's mother was a Hicks.
Leander J. Arrants b. 19 Aug 1869 d. 10 Feb 1949 in California
I'm looking for some independent verification of a marriage to a Hicks prior to the marriage to Mary Riley Giesler.
