Michael Farley, age 25, b. Dexter, MI
Married To
Louise R. Maxon, age 24, living in Elkhart, Indiana, b. Jackson, MI
Witnesses: Arthur D. Armand & Charles Fisher

In 1850, Louise Maxon, age 1, was living with her (probable) parents, Friend (b. NY) & Maribah (b. Canada) Maxon, along with Lydia, age 3, and Lydia, age 67, in Waterloo, Jackson Co., Michigan. There was another Louise Maxon in Jackson Co.; assumed Louise's son, "Friend," was named after her father, so I placed her in this family. Of course, I could be wrong.
