I am searching for info for my GGf, Joseph Lane GUEST (b. abt 1861 Russellville, AR, d. 1888). His 2nd marriage 9/16/1883 to L. Jane Sullivan (b. 1863- ?) produced two children - my Grandmother Minnie Pearl GUEST (b. 6/22/1890-2/6/1978 Pope County, AR) and her brother Luther William (1883-1942). Minnie married 6/22/1909 John Martin HOLMES (b. 5/2/1889-11/29/1948).
Joseph Lane's 1st marriage was 7/24/1881 Sarah A. Mooney (b. 1861 d. 1882), they had a daughter, Mary Guest (b. 1882 d. 1974). Sarah most likely died during or shortly after giving birth to Mary. Our family believes Mary might've been raised by other relatives since Joseph remarried so soon after Sarah's death. My Grandmother did not know about Mary until decades later when they located each other and lived together until Mary's death in 1974.
His parents, William Wesley GUEST (b. 11/23/1840 Cass County, GA-1899) & Rachel WESTON (b. May 1838 Indiana) were married 11/6/1859 in Pope County, Arkansas.
