NOV. 7, 1882,
Eliza Matthews and Joseph P. Landacre were married in 1873 in nearby Franklin County. Seven years later, they are listed in the 1880 Federal Census (again, Franklin County) with two young sons. Do the math: The boys were born before the marriage. Hmm.
One possibility, which also fits Eliza’s age when she was married (43 or 44), is that Eliza was Joseph’s second wife and the sons were born to his first.
