John Hesson Jr.'s second marriage: In the 1870 census, Junetta, age 40 and b. IN, appears as Junetta Hesson, apparently the spouse of John Hesson Jr. Also in the family are George Hesson, age 4, and James Black, age 9. The only recorded marriage for John after 1860 is recorded in Spencer County Marriage Record Volume 5 which contains marriage license and return information. On page 43 is the license entry for John Hesson and (difficult to read the script) Burnethy Entrican, issued 9 Mar 1864, with return information that the marriage of John Hesson and (either) Benthy or Beutty Entrican was performed on 26 Mar 1864 by T. T. Williams, Minister of the Gospel. There are sevral other Entrican marriages recorded in Spencer Co.:
