I am sorry but I think I mislead you. Marcus or Mark married a widow with 2 children in Cass Co. Indiana. On the 1870 tax rolls he and his wife are living in Logansport Indiana and have 2 children ages 2 and 1 1/2 plus the 2 step children. He died around 1880 and is buried in the 12 mile cemetary near Logansport.
I believe that Jacob W. must have been a first cousin. The name Jacob Wright appears in many of the Abshire families, in fact my grandfather was named Jacob Wright.
