This is Gilbert and first wife [Mabell Alcott KING? Source?]. By 1859, he was married to Jane UNKNOWN per her 1863 letter to her brother-in-law, James COMBS, in which she stated "R. Lorton is tall and thin resembles his mother in countenance but is also a Combs in some respects... Joseph K. is in the country about 25 miles from here learning to farm. He is a fine boy, now eighteen years of age and resembles his Father very much. Mary R. is thirteen." Robert Lorton [sic], Joseph K. and Mary R. (Mary Ranolds) COMBS (born ca 18950?) were her stepchildren, all named in this same letter. Robert Lorton was apparently(?) the Robert M. above.
