    6. [S33] Obituary-Michael J. Behen, Page 12 (Reliability: 2).
      Obituary for Michael states Michael and Elizabeth Stanton were married forty-two years ago (Death 1922), makes marriage about 1880. However, Francis was reported as being one-year old when the 1880 census (July 1880) was done; so it stands to reason Michael and Elizabeth were married in late 1878 or early 1879 and Francis was born the next year.

    7. [S35] 1880 Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie, IA-Mike Behen, 1880 Census (Reliability: 2).
      Francis (Frankie) was reported to be one-year-old in the 1880 census (July) so it stands to reason Michael and Elizabeth were married prior to 1880.
