George PRINDLE married Lena Bell PRINDLE in abt. 1909 in Jackson County, IA.

She was the daughter of George Olander PRINDLE and Elizabeth HILL. Elizabeth HILL, aka Betsey, was the daughter of Henry HILL and Rachail PRINDLE. Lena was previously married to Hiley GRAVES. She had children, Harold E. GRAVES, 6 years old and Mearid GRAVES, 11 months old with her in the 1910 Maquoketa, Jackson, IA census. She was already widowed at this point. The census stated she had borne 3 children, with 2 living. She was listed as Lena COLLINS, daughter of Benjamin COLLINS and Elizabeth HILL-COLLINS. Benjamin was the second husband of Elizabeth HILL. Lena took the COLLINS surname after going to live with her mother and Benjamin COLLINS.

Even though the record above states a birth year of 1883, it is most likely incorrect. George Olander PRINDLE, her father, was 24 and Elizabeth just 19 in 1885 when the IA state census was taken and a child (Lena) was not listed with them. It is my belief Lena was born later that calendar year.
