It is ordered this suit be abated. This day came the defendant by his attorney and suggests the death of the plaintiff by consent of defendants council, it is ordered by the court that this suit be revived in the name of MARY SLATTEN, administratrix of John Slatten, deceased. So, as you can see two documents show different spouses. I suggested two different marriages to descendants but they state that Mary (Polly) Edwards is the mother of all the children.
