 Page 376 of Charles Huggins' book, Huggins Families of Western PA & Northern West Virginia, (published in 1987), showed Oliver as being married twice - (1) on 6 May 1878 in Wetzel County to May E. Parsons who was born about 1853 in (West) Virginia and (2) on an unknown date to Mary E. Gardner who was born about 1851 in (West) Virginia and died on 13 Aug 1883.

 

"May E. Parsons" and "Mary E. Gardner" were actually the same person - Mary Ellen Garner.  Her first marriage (on 4 May 1867) was to Henry Seth Parsons, who died on 27 June 1877.  Therefore, at the time Mary married Oliver Huggans in 1878, her legal name was Mary Ellen Parsons.
