Married, Mar 5 1907 Sherman Co, NE, Mary Westerhouse Tykwart (claimed widowed in 1900 Census, but husband didn't die until 1922, so divorced)
In the 1910 Census, Mary is a widow with two Coppersmith children:
Faye F (1901 NE-1925 NE) FAG 49501184
Marie (1904 NE-1990 NE) FAG 76845181
Whose children are these? They can't be Mary's, as they were born before their marriage. They are not mentioned in Ira's obituary. Mary had five children by her first marriage, the last, twins, born in 1890. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
