Sources:

1.  Encyclopedia Britannica CD-98.  Never married, d.s.p. (as far as we know).

2.  LDS.  Family Search: Internet Genealogy Service: Ancestral File.  Shows him with two wives, one he's said to have married in 1795 (his birth year) and one he's said to have married on 24 Dec 1873 (his death date).  Good grief.  As if we needed another lesson in not trusting the AF!
