"Do you have any idea why the marriage certificate listed Elizabeth Davenport Powers as the daughter of John Kestner?"

Joel Lilly's mother was Emmarita Kestner, daughter of John Kestner - maybe there was some confusion as to what to put on the marriage license.

Do you know if there are any existing pictures of Joel Lilly? I have an old tintype with "Joel Lilly" written on the back, but I have two Joels in my database, and always assumed he was the younger of the two. It would be nice to have something to compare it to.
