    • William was 37 and Anna was 22 when they were married.

      The couple separated a couple times, and disagreed over whether or not to raise the children (as he wanted) as Roman Catholics. When he died, they were separated from each other, so he was buried by himself, and later, she was buried by herself.

    Family 3 O'Toole,   d. Yes, date unknown 
    Married Iowa, United States Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • This must have been a brief marriage, either a marriage before Erhardt (one census reports her being married at 14! so this may be a possibility) or a marrage after Erhardt, in the couple years before she married Daniels.

      Deb Goff reports that O'Toole was her maiden name, and there were no marriages before Erhardt. She was raised by a woman in West Union, but never adopted.
