Eller Galemore, age 21, married William Criswell in 1904. William was 43 years. William had been married twice before and when Eller married him, he had three small children; Laura, Bertha and Arthur. He raised his small children and they had three of their own. Joseph Criswell by his first marriage was Eller's age. Joseph lived much of his younger life with his own mother and William Criswell's brother Marcus in Trenton, Missouri.
William and Eller lived much of their life in the Pocahontas area of Arkansas, moving to Oklahoma once to visit with his nephew Walter Criswell in Oklahoma where at the time, Mabel May was born.
