    Margaret was widowed three times.  Several genealogies report themarriage dates of Margaret to her three husbands.  None of them hascited a source record and I have not found one.  Margaret and Robert'slast child Ethel Jane was born in about 1859, reported as 1 year oldin 1860.  Genealogies report Robert Rust's death as 27 Jul 1862,though none has provided any information.  Burial information reportedas Union Cemetery, Texas County, Missouri, was not confirmed by anylisting from that cemetery registry, for either Robert or Margaret.

    I found the record of her marriage to Jacob Smyer,   Ancestrytranscribes the date of that marriage as 6 Oct 1866.  Genealogiesreport the date as 6 Oct 1863.  But the record is so faded I cannotfind her entry on the page of several.  In light of the reports ofRobert Rust's death in 1862, the 1863 date is attractive.  Thetranscriptions at Ancestry.com have a high percentage of error.

    In the 1879 census, we see her third husband, her children with RobertRust and her Smyer step-children who are still in the home.

    The informant appears to be Margaret's daughter Amanda Rust Johnson.The writing is scrawled and overwritten on the certificate, and Icannot clearly tell what the last name here is.  It looks like asecond married name.
