Samuel W. Prouty of Boone Co MO

Does anyone recognize Samuel W. Prouty?? He married Elizabeth Dickey 31 Dec 1843 in Boone Co., MO. May have been a second marriage by both as Elizabeth would have been abt 32 at time of marriage to Samuel. Marriage seems to have been short lived since Boone Co. marriage records show an Elizabeth Prouty married Drury Sanders 4 Oct 1846. It also seems she may have brought several children into marriage with Drury, most of which pre date earlier marriage to Samuel Prouty. Death issued 19 Oct 1894 records show: Mrs. Eliza Dickey Sanders, age abt 83, died 12 Oct 1894. Drury's first marriage was to an Elizabeth Colvin who is mistakenly listed as being born in Knox Co., KY. I think error is result of Elizabeth Dickey Prouty being confused with Elizabeth Colvin -- and that it was likely that this Elizabeth Dickey that was born in Know Co., KY. Confused?? We sure are. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks, Butch (aka Charles Sanders)
