      "She (Aunt Jennie) went on to explain that her mother [Emily Frances] had been converted from the Catholic Church when a young woman. So consequently her first husband may not have been Catholic either. Altho Aunt Jennie said she had her children all christened in the Catholic Church because her relatives had feared that the children would be lost if she didn't do so. But not one of her children ever adherred [sic] to the Catholic faith. They are all Protestants. Becoming Protestants through conversion when they were still young people. She said she herself had become converted through reading the New Testament of her Bible after asking God to show her the way. [Is this the French New Testament belonging to Jennie that Gertrude was so diligently looking for in the 1940s and which I have?--Robert L. Quinnett] You will read all this when you read her letter and probably understand it all much better by so doing. She also tells that her mother was divorced from her father who was great-grandmother's third husband.": Letter from Gertrude Hagler (concerning Jennie Philpott) to AEQ, 16 May 1940, in the possession of Robert L. Quinnett.

      In WI, according to a granddaughter, "two men came and talked to him [Bevier] in his language and he deserted Grandma. Now I am not sure if aunt Frances had been born or if Grandma was just expecting her so maybe when Grandma married Mr. Diacon, he adopted her.": Letter in possession of Robert L. Quinnett.



      After the death of Diacon in 1865, she moved with her family to Kossuth County, Iowa where she married and divorced Joseph Monahan in 1870. She had a homestead 12 miles from Algona, Iowa, which she later traded for land in Kansas: Robert Leishman papers in possession of Robert L. Quinnett.



      After marrying Foley in Michigan, they moved to Coffey County, KS, where they lived on a farm near Lebo, KS. They separated and she went to Canada where she died: Robert Leishman papers in possession of Robert L. Quinnett.
