    The Georgia record, as the Ancestry transcription reads, reports that Buell and Annie married in 1889.  But a family genealogy reprots that the marriage took place in 1882.  Ages and birth dates in the 1900 census report that their first child was born in 1891, which would fit the later date.  There may have been one or two older children who could already be out of the home on their own by 1900.  I am inclined to believe the genealogy just has the wrong year.

    If Annie died in Dalton, then it was at the home of her mother.  At that time, Buell's younger brother Pryor owned the Stark farm and home.  However, Buell was forced to take it over, pay off Pryor's debts (Pryor had a problem with the bottle and was an inept manager), and move my grandmother down to the family home at Stark Springs in order to save the farm. ... [Buell's second wife] raised Annie's children before she had two sons of her own, James Ferdinand Stark b. 1919 and Arnold Wood (changed to George Arnold in 1942) Stark b. 1920.
