    It looks like the marriage was actually in 1865, since in the June1870 census their first child Isaac is already 4 years old.  Itappeared that Isaac was the son of Mary Jane rather than Edna, butthis is uncertain.  So perhaps Edna died in childbirth with Isaac in1866 and I J married Mary Jane the same year.  Norton actually reportsthe birth of Isaac in 1865 as a son of Mary Jane, even though the datehe reports for the marriage is 1866.  I would think this is an error,given the era and the situation.

    The 1880 census indicates that Mary Jane has died.  The last childhere is 3 years old, indicating she was born before June 1877.  Sountil I find some further records, we can conclude that Mary Jane diedbetween 1877 and 1880.  The entry for this last child, a daughter,looks like A E, but is actually Alice Azalee.

    Briscoe, G W  At Home W M 12 TX MO TN [b abt 1868]
    Briscoe, A E (A A?) W F 8 TX MO TN [b abt 1872]

    The age of this J J Briscoe matches Isaac Jefferson, and the childrenin the family match.  But as in 1870 has JJ rather than IJ.  Also nowthe birth state is reported as Texas, rather than as Missouri likeother censuses for I J.  However, the birthplace of the father of thechildren is correctly reported as Missouri.

    I note also that the enumerator listed Texas as the place of birthonly by using a ditto, following the previous entry of severalchildren of the previous family born in Texas.  He likewise placed aditto for the relationship, indicating "J J" was a son!  Even thoughhe is the first entry for a new household and family.  This seems toaccount for the wrong birth state, as an enumerator error.

    The 1900 census records I J and his 3rd wife Hattie R Price in ParkerCounty, Texas.

    Isaac's obituary provides extensive information about his life.  Theoriginal source of this is uncertain, but likely it was theWeatherford Democrat.  It has been posted on Ancestry.com by agenealogist, with additional notes on some family members.  Note thatthe obituary spells the family name Brisco, though most members of thefamily spell it Briscoe.
