Hiram Stotler and Sarah F. Stotler in 1879

Hiram Stotler and Sarah F. Stotler.
Hiram Stotler and Sarah F. Stotler
This is another from an old Stotler album. It was captioned: 1879 - "My father and step mother, Mr. and Mrs. Stotler" Bedford, Iowa. I assume the caption was written by my 2nd great grandmother Mary H. Stotler-Ross. After my 3rd great grandmother Hannah Argo-Stotler died in March 1871, Hiram married Sarah Frances Stevenson ("Fannie") in December 1871. They eventually divorced and she lived in Mansfield, Illinois from 1880 until her death in 1920. I posted her obituary here. I think Hiram was living in Iowa from 1900 until his death, so perhaps they divorced prior to 1900.
