I am researching this Martha Kingery who was married to a Jacob Petry in 1862 in Lawrence Co Ohio. At the time of her marriage, she had a son William Henry, who later went by Henry Kingery. Jacob appears to have died in the Civil War and in 1874 Martha Petry married a James Gossett. When she died in 1910, the Ironton Newspaper reported that James Gossett was arrested on the belief that he had murdered his wife, based on accusations made by his stepson from a previous marriage, Henry Kingery. I had thought Martha was the daughter of Elijah Franklin Kingery and Delilah Mannon Kingery. Does anyone know who the father of William Henry, born around 1860, might be? Was this Martha's maiden name Kingery, or was she a widow in 1862? She and Jacob Petry are my husband's great grandparents.
