- Marriage/Union Notes
- Family Notes
- Mary Ellen's fourth husband was Mr. Heyland. Since Richard Fisher died the summer of 1912, she probably married him in 1913 or 1914. Emilia Flaska Warak recalled, "Mary Ellen later married Richard H. Heyland who was related to the Pete Knight family and had a homestead not far from Knights. They met when Mary Ellen attended Mrs. Knight at the birth of one of her babies." Heyland lived at Mary Ellen's homestead after they were married. He was described as red-faced and bow legged. Edwin Watson used to tease his stepfather by bowing his legs and walking behind Heyland in that fashion when he wasn't looking.
Emilia Flaska Warak wrote, "The couple broke up when Mary Ellen and her husband were on their way to a dance at the home of Beryld Hemphill's mother. (This would have been after August of 1915 or before Edwin's 16th birthday in 1916) They stopped at Levin's where a group was gathering to go to the dance together. While there, Mary Ellen learned that her husband was instrumental in getting Ed Watson who was only 15, to enlist. The couple had a falling out and he went home, (next farm north) while Mary Ellen went on to the dance. He gathered up all his belongings, including some sheep, and left, returning to his own farm, probably SW
59- 20-4. He must have died not too long after that."
