      Mr. McGeehon erected a log cabin and put up ten acres of hay, and in September, of that year [1852], returned to Bloomington, Illinois, where he was married to Mary J. Hoblitt, on the 26th of September, a sister of Morris. They immediately returned to the new home he had selected in Iowa. They made their home with Mr. Vinnage, at Indiantown, until he had completed his house, where they spent a very hard winter comfortably together.
