Carrie A. Tuttle married Adelbert D. Purdy on January 1, 1880 in Belding, Ionia County, Michigan. He was older than she, but it is not clear from the records by how much. He was listed as born in 1851 when they married, but as born in 1855 in the 1860 and 1870 censuses and as 1866 in later records. 1855 seems most likely. Carrie and Adelbert divorced before 1900 and had no children. However, Carrie's sister Mary had married Adelbert's brother Fred Purdy. She remained close to her sister and brother-in-law. She lived with them in 1900 before she married a second time and is buried with them in this cemetery (see headstone photo).

Adelbert D. Purdy married a second time to Olie Hale on April 17, 1906. Carrie married William H. Allen on 15 Feb 1902 in Ionia, Ionia County, Michigan. William was significantly younger than she, born in November 1878. Perhaps embarrassed by the age difference, Carrie reported that she was born in 1872 on her marriage certificate and also on the 1910 and 1920 censuses.

It is not known where William H. Allen is buried. He reported on the marriage certificat that he is the son of Jennie Hamilton and Thomas Allen.
