"misinformation regarding the mother of
John Stevenson Baxter listed in the FAG
Memorial #31809504. His father,
Isaac Oldham Baxter married
Martha McElroy Henderson (born 6 Nov 1840
in Jefferson, Guernsey, Ohio) on 20
December 1866 in Franklin, Ohio. Martha
died 30 March 1871 in Warren, Illinois.
According to the 1880 U.S. Census and the
1900 U.S. Census, Isaac Oldham Baxter was
listed as widowed.

Per the 1900 U.S. Census, Isaac O. Baxter,
born March 1840 in Ohio, was living with
his SISTER, Sarah E. Baxter, born October
1841 and listed as single (not married).
They were enumerated in Afton, Union, Ohio
in 1900.

Per the 1910 U.S. Census, Isaac O. Baxter,
age 70 and widowed, was living with his
SISTER, Sarah E. Baxter, age 77 and still
single. I believe the age listed for Sarah
is an error. It, likely, should be 67, not
77. They were enumerated in Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma, Oklahoma in 1910.

I venture that since Isaac & Sarah Baxter
were buried with a common headstone, it was
assumed that they were married. That is not
the case here; they were siblings."
