Question: Did James Harvey Stanfield/Stanphill have only two wives?

I've run into some questions about how many wives James Harvey Stanfield/Stanphill had. Frances Adams I can account for as she's listed in the censuses by name. Also have their marriage date at 6 Sept. 1837 in Polk Co., Missouri. Melinda ?Mandivil I've heard was mother to Sarah Eletha, James's daughter, but I don't have a marriage date or other info to double check. Perhaps some of you can help. I don't think James had several wives as I've seen from other information I've collected. I've seen a James Stanphill married to Malvina Werick in 1865 Polk Co., Missouri, but I don't think this James is James Harvey because he was very old and living in Arkansas at the time and would not have travelled all the way back to Polk Co., MO to marry. I've also seen a James Stanphill married to Sarah Smith in 1870, but, for the same reasons, I don't think this James is James Harvey. I think Sarah Smith got mixed up with another marriage I've seen. I've seen Sarah Stanphill, age 53, married to Samuel Guess, age 53 in 1887, but Sarah Smith as above.

I think James Harvey may have had only two or three wives, but perhaps some of you can help straighten out the questions and dilema.
