The marriage of Doane-1072 to Scott-18682 seems erroneous, as it would make the bride 21 years senior to the groom.  Jacob Scott's marriage to Esther Vansant (Van Zandt), Vansant-13, is documented and would be in conflict.

I have a relative that did the same.  It is always possible.

Your source may show that it is the wrong person as his wife, since you found a conflict unless there are two Jacob Scott, which is also possible.

Sometimes it is difficult to determine where the spouse came from or whom the parents are when they are not indicated in the marriage docs.

Add research notes to the profiles, including the other marriage source, as well as your concerns.

Today there are those who'd call her a cougar but me personally I'd call her an independent woman who knows her own mind  :-)
