Jerome was arrested in 1891.  The story, from the Mitchell Daily Republican, Mitchell SD:

In 1900, Elva states she is a widow and, along with the boys, was living with her brother, Karl while Mabel was living with Elva's parents. Jerome was in the Minnesota State Prison.  By 1910, he was remarried and living in Minneapolis.
