Also listed is James's wife Martha age 18 and thier son James B Barnes, age 4 months. Joseph Henry May and Nancy Elizabeth Gaither married November 23, 1888 in Clinton, Van Buren County Arkansas. They left their marriage license there to be copied and never came back to get it. I have gotten a copy of it. It is at the Van Buren County Arkansas Museum. Joseph Henry (Mase) that is how it was spelled on the 1910 census for Van Buren County Arkansas. It should have been May. He is listed as being 39 and wife Nancy E. May as 36. Children listed at that ime with then are William A. 19, Amanda E. 14, Nancy B. 11, George H. 9, Archie L 7, and John 4.
