Jessie was married to William Harrison Auten on __________ __, 19__ at __________, __________. William H. Auten's first wife, Hattiett (Peet) Auten died on December 15, 1899.

Then on __________ __, 19__, William and Jessie were married. Also sometime after Harriet's death William moved to Big Bend, Wisconsin, where he spent the remainder of his life.
Interestingly, at the time of his first wife's, Harriet's death, William had a plot and a marker set in the Kidder Cemetery in Caldwell County, Missouri for himself. When he remarried and moved to Wisconsin, when he died, William was buried beside his second wife, Jessie. So, there is a marker for William in the Kidder Cemetery that went unused. This marker can be seen on Find A Grave as monument #21324763. The monuments for three of his children, as stated before can also be found on Find A Grave in this cemetery.

(Baxter would enjoy hearing from anyone, especially descendants of the Auten family, who might be able to add to the biographical material that we have on William Harrison Auten and the Auten family. Baxter would also love to see copies of any other pictures that may have survived the years of William Harrison Auten, especially any others of him in uniform, added to his Find A Grave site for all to see.)
