Mary A. Anderton 1900 Huntsville, Madison Co., AL census

I am researching my Marsh family and have gotten a little stuck on an ANDERTON.

As follows:
1900 Huntsville, Madison Co., AL
15 JUN 1900, 8 SD, 98 ED, Sheet 20 image 39 of 51 on

Mary A. Anderton Head b. May 1861 age 39 Married 24 years 6children born/5 children living b. AL TN TN
Minnie Marsh daughter b. Apr 1877 age 23 married 5 years 1 child born/1 child living b. AL AL AL
Joseph K. Marsh son-in-law b. June 1874 age 25 married 5 years b. AL AL AL
Mary A. Marsh granddaughter b. March 1897 age 3 yearsb. AL AL AL
Beckey E. Marsh daughter b. Jun 1886 age 13 b. AL AL AL
Albert Marsh son b. May 1888 age 12 b. AL AL AL
Willie Marsh son b. March 1893 age 7 b. AL AL AL
Maudie Marsh daughter b. March 1894 age 6 b. AL AL AL

NOTE: These seem to be daughters and son's (Beckey-Albert-Willie-Maude) of JOSEPH MARSH NOT the head of the family Mary A. Anderton based on later census.
WHERE Is Mary A. Anderton's husband since she is listed as married not widowed.

On Hollis Marsh's marriage certificates, he lists 1)in 1938 he states his mother is Minnie Andleton (sic) and father as Joe Marsh. On his marriage 2) 1955 he lists his mother as Minnie Guthrie and father as Joe Marsh

I am beginning to suspect that this Joseph Marsh was the brother of Theophilus Morgan Marsh (my grandfather), but this census and other information leads to more questions.
