Birth: May 8, 1854
Mercer County
Missouri, USA
Death: Jun. 1, 1887

Mary Evaline Wiggins was born on May 08, 1854 in Lindley Twp., Mercer Co., MO. She is listed as Evaline, age 6, with her parents on the 1860 census of Lindley Twp.

Evaline married Thomas Jefferson "Tom" Goodin. They had four children. They are on the 1870 census of Lindley Township as Thomas Goodwin, age 23, and wife Mary L.E. age 16. They are living next door to Tom's brother James Goodwin & family at that time.

Tom went to Kansas in 1879 and obtained a homestead in Rawlins Co., KS. He is listed on the 1880 census of T2 R32, Rawlins Co., KS as T.J. Goodin, age 32, selling goods. Evaline is on the census that same year with the children, living by her parents in Lindley Twp., Mercer Co., MO. I do not know if the separation was originally due to difficulties in the marriage, but Tom remarried in 1882 and had a second family.

Evaline was remarried to Fernando C. "Cork" Humphrey about 1884. Fernando was a widower with at least 4 children from his first marriage. Fernando & Evaline had one daughter named Maud, born in October 1885.

Mary Evaline Wiggins Goodin Humphreys died June 1, 1887 in Lindley Twp., Mercer Co., MO. She is buried in the Pleasant Hill Cemetery, Lindley Township,Mercer Co.,MO. Her tombstone says Mary E. Humphreys, age: 33y 23d.

Fernando Humphrey emigrated to South Dakota with daughter Maud. He married at least twice more; to Lou about 1900, and to Henrietta Duxbury on September 14, 1903. Fernando died in McCook, SD on January 22, 1908.
