I am looking for information on my ggg aunt's second husband, MARION EVERETT CROSSLEY b:1870? IA d:NE? and their children. According to a Madison Co researcher, Marion's parents were Abner Crossley and Mary Jane Bell. Abner may have went by the name Cyrus, as there was a Marion living with a Cryus and Mary J Crossley on the 1900 Madison Co IA Census.

My ggg aunt, Francis Etta (Peacock) Trotter b:1878 IL d:1953 NE married Marion Everett Crossley on Mar 20, 1905 in Madison Co, IA after divorcing Marion S. Trotter in July of 1903.

Francis and Marion lived in Emmet Co,Iowa on the 1910 Census:
Name:        Merion E Crossley
Age in 1910:        39
Estimated birth year:        abt 1871
Birthplace:        Iowa
Relation to Head of House:        Head
Father's Birth Place:        Ohio
Mother's Birth Place:        Ohio
Spouse's name:        Frances E
Home in 1910:        Center, Emmet, Iowa
Marital Status:        Married
Race:        White
Gender:        Male
Household Members:        
Merion E Crossley        39
Frances E Crossley        33
Ethel A Trotter        7

By 1920, Marion and Francis had moved to Nebraska but were either divorced or seperated, as they were each living alone in different counties on the 1920 Census. By 1930, Francis married an Alvin McKinney. I do not know what became of Marion or their children.

Thank you for your help,
