1.  Illinois Statewide Marriage Index, 17631900:
Compare date with that from obituary.  Given the birthdate of their first child, I suspect this record may have been misread.

Living next door to Abigail's parents.

1870 Faighny, John KS Jackson Co. Douglass Twp. p. 282

Might this be a misreading of our subject?  He should be there in Jackson Co.  Who is George?  John's son, George, is too young to be head-of-household.

Abigail Rhoda Holt was born 24 September 1838 in Munson, Geauga county, OH.  She married John Peter Faidley 22 Oct 1854 at Morrison, Whiteside County, IL.  He preceded her in death 15 January 1910 at Maxwell, Story county, IA.  The Faidley's were among the pioneers of Kansas journeying by covered wagon from Fairhaven, Carroll county, IL.  They arrived first in Brown county in July 1867 and later settled in Soldier, Jackson county, KS.  They apparently left Illinois in 1866, for they spent about a year on a farm near Keokuk, IA, where a son was born in December of 1866.  Mrs. Faidley died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Jesse A. White, 6016 East 12th Street, Kansas City, Jackson County, MO.  Of eleven children, seven survive: Mrs. James (Katherine) White, Rossville, KS; Thomas Douglas Faidley, Circleville, KS; Charles Putnam Faidley, Maxwell, IA; Mrs. Asa (Anna Innis) McConnell, Nevada, IA; Frank F. Faidley, Circleville, KS; Mrs. Elbe (Mollie Effie) Alverson, Maxwell, IA; Mrs. Jesse A. (Nellie) White, Kansas City, MO.  As descendents she leaves seven of her eleven children, thirty-seven grandchildren, forty-eight great grandchildren, and one great, great grand-child.
