marriage to lydia pile from vermilion county marriage abstracts.

Wayne Gritton's great aunt myrtle gritten Wilson said the Labon denied paternity of his last child with sarah potter (dora) . Seems he came home from the civil war and sarah had a new child. In the 1870 census of Vermilion county it shows a sarah (age 35) and a 4 year old Dora. It seems Labon kept all the other children when he married Lydia Pile.
