I recently obtained the marriage license for this couple, which si the final piece in clearing up the family.

Joseph Seese married his 2nd cousin Mary Ann Kuhns on 11 Jul 1893, six years after the death of his first wife Augusta Wentworth on 2 Oct 1887 and six weeks after her divorce from Israel Wirick on 29 May 1893, and when she was 7+ months pregnant with Emanuel. Although 37 when married, Mary Ann went on to have four children with Joseph. They each had four children in their first marriages.

For whatever it is worth, I am the great grandson of Lelah Stepp, who was born Lelah Seese. If you would like information on the link between she and I, please let me know.

Israel Wirick died in 1891 which was two years prior to Mary's remarriage.
They never divorced, as he widowed her.
For the record Israel and Mary Wirick only had two children. Ephraim and Frederick.
All of this information can be accurately found in the obituaries of both of the parties involved.

Brian hi im researching my geneology. We have a common ancestor Richard Thomas and barbar(Rummel) Thomas. Their son Frank(your ancestor) Was the brother of my great grandfather William Clifford Thomas. born may 9 1892 he left pennsylvania went to montana married Iona angeline Frost. Relocated to washington state where he died in fall city wash. I have in my record also two sisters Lizzie Jane (adams)
and Rosie ann (Wissenger) married robert wissenger. I have listed for parents of richard Lewis and susanna both born in wales. This is as far back i can trace. Do you have any info on earlier generations, on the Thomas and rummel surnames. thanks Gina
