he left wife Elizabeth Case and lived in Pennsylvania for 17 years, apparently marrying there a Matilda Krebs and had 6 children with her before returning to his first wife . No record of a marriage to Matilda has ever been found so unknown if he was legally divorced/married.

Matilda Krebs, on her application for a widow's pension, claims she married him April 7, 1872 in Pine Grove, Pennsylvania- they claimed each had not been married before.
