After John Fenn's First wife Mary (Jory) Fenn died in Pike County, Ill. in November 1846, Mary's sister Elizabeth cared for the four children until the pioneers arrived in Oregon. In 1847, John Fenn then took his sister-in-law as his second wife. It is believed that Mary Jory Fenn is buried in Pike County, Ill.
From the following publication: "Jory Family Cemetery in Marion County," by Mark Poulin & Addie Dyal in BB,XIV, #4 pg 87 we find the following: "The earliest burial seems to be of Elizabeth Jory Fenn, a daughter of James Sr. in 1854, though other burials may also have been made earlier." In the same article we find: "Fenn, Elizabeth Jory--b. 16 June 1822--d. 14 Dec 1855-1854. Elizabeth Jory married John Fenn on the Clatsop Planes in Oct. of 1847 or 49 just after arriving in Oregon Territory. John had married her sister, Mary Jory in 1839 in Pike County, Ill and she had died in 1846 and is buried there. The census of 1850 of Oregon Territory shows a John "Fern" family in Lynn county with a wife "E.A." born in England. Also a son "N.I." born in England, indicating that John may have been married even earlier." (JERRY: Grandma Coonc, in her story doesn't mention any son of John's born in England) " John and Mary had 4 known children (see above) and John and Elizabeth had 3 known children and it is possible that John married again. Not much is known about the Fenn/Fern decendants."
