Thanks, RJ.  I am sorry to see that there was no mention of husbands Nicks, Holyfield, Mott, Chapman or Urban or any other husband whose name I have not yet discovered.  But at least I now know that she became a Rev at about the time she married #4, Asel B. Chapman, who is the husband of interest to me.

 Strange... her obit implies she was only survived by a niece and nephew, but this article from 1968 when she went home, states she has several siblings still alive.

That's Jennie's father, 'Lonestar,' in the middle.  There is a tree at FamilySearch with a lengthy and amusing account of Lonestar's exploits as a frontier lawman.  Unfortunately, it doesn't say much of anything about Jennie.

Thanks again, RJ.  That's two marriages down [Nicks and Mott] and at least three [Holyfield, Chapman and Urban] to go.

Does anyone have any idea what denomination the 'Christ Church of God' and the 'Church of God, Spiritual' would be?  I can't find any reference to them in San Francisco or Omaha.  The address in San Francisco [26 7th Street] is for the Odd Fellows Building but I have found no indication that it was ever used as a church.
