I don't know a lot about Mary Evaline's second marriage to "Cork" Humpreys. I looked on the 1880 census in Mercer Co., MO and the only Humphrey men I saw were:

1880 United States Census Princeton, Mercer, Missouri Page Number 72A
Name Relation Marital Status Gender Race Age Birthplace Occupation Father's Birthplace Mother's Birthplace
Fernando C. HUMPHREYS Self W Male W 45 VA Works For Creamery VA VA
Mary V. HUMPHREYS Dau S Female W 20 IL Keeping House VA OH
Elizabeth E. HUMPHREYS Dau S Female W 18 IL Keeping House VA OH
Cortez R. HUMPHREYS Son S Male W 16 IL Laborer VA OH
William V. HUMPHREYS Son S Male W 11 IL VA OH

I think "Cork" may be the widowed Fernando C., and Evaline married him about 1884. She died in 1887, and I think I find Fernando C. in McCook, South Dakota in 1900 (he died there in 1908) - census taker's handwriting is terrible, but it looks like it says:

1900 census Spencer, McCook Co., South Dakota
F. C. Humpery, head, Oct 1834, age 65, VA/VA/VA
Louise (? Hard to read), wife, Nov 1867, age 32, 1 birth 1 surviving, IN/IN/IN
M. F. (T?), daughter, Oct 1885, age 14, MO/VA/MO
It says the wife has 1 birth with 1 surviving child, but she was born in IN and daughter M. F.'s mother was born in Missouri. It also doesn't list how long they have been married, so maybe less than one year?
