The marriage record in Crawford Co: Bert L. Redmon, age 21 to Frances M. Comstock, age 19. 6 Dec 1913. C. M. Pitts, JP.
Aunt Maude lived with Grandma (Ellen Comstock, her mother) and took care of her for many years. Although family records give her name as "Fanny" Maude, her marriage license to Bert L. Redmon reads Frances M. Comstock.
When JoEllen and Joe McKim were married in 1946, Aunt Maude was listed in the newspaper as Mrs. Maude Hudnut of Van Buren. Perhaps she had another marriage after the death of Bert Redman - but I think it most likely a mistake.
I found a letter Aunt Maude wrote to her nephew Jay Comstock, 2 Mar 1953. She said that she and Mom [Grandma Comstock] were doing all right. Lettie & Cy were on a trip. Nora & Kenney, Ira & Minnie had just returned from a trip [this might have been a trip they made to Florida]. Maude talks about nine months that she had with Mr. Crawley who had just passed away quite suddenly - they were engaged to be married. They had a house ready and extensive plans made for their lives together. She told Jay that Nora was just like her own sister. She expressed a wish to travel, but had no money to do so. She had recently seen Edna & Lester and Colleen and Buddy. She asked Jay to come to Grandma's birthday celebration and reunion to be held on March 29th. Signed: Auntie Maude.
Aunt Maude is buried GraceLawn Cemetery in Van Buren along with many members of her Comstock family.

Aunt Maude signed the funeral register of Kenney Comstock as Maude "Redmon" so I presume that is the correct spelling.
