spouse 2: Maggie : married after Lavona's death. Married in 1870.
Madam/Mistress: Lucy Conner: 3 children died in childhood in Michigan. He officially never married Lucy but she took his name and named her children Maggie and William. He never divorced Lavona, he left her and James when James was an infant for Lucy. WH was never listed on any census with them. Maggie was born 1899, William was born 1892 and James was born before the 1910 census so WH was obviously still seeing Lucy after his marriage to Maggie in 1870. Both children were born in South Carolina.
