There is a peculiar situation regarding the wife/wives of John R. Price. Obviously his wife was named Elizabeth on 27 Mar 1846 when he wrote his will. There is a marriage of John R. Price to Elizabeth Scarborough on 30 Nov 1847, in Logan Co KY which is more than a year after he named an Elizabeth in the will. In the 1850 Census, John R. Price is 75 years old; the lady living in his household is Elizabeth, age 31, born in Tennessee. Apparently John was married to an Elizabeth who was the mother of all his children; she died following the writing of his will; he soon remarried to Elizabeth Scarborough.
