Have not find Charles and Marian in the 1870 US Census
1880 US Census Charles and Marian Palmer were living in Trinidad, Las
Animas Co., CO and they have four children.
Byron G Palmer b. abt 1865 in Ohio
Harland Palmer b. 1867 in Ohio
Emma Palmer b. 1878 in Colorado
Eva Palmer b. 1878 in Colorado
There is no 1890 US Census.
I do not know what happened to Marion/Marian and the twin daughters. They seem to be missing after the 1880 US Census. In 1900 Byron G was living in Woodland Park, CO and Harland was living in Denver.
1900 US Census, Charles is living with his second wife Sionilli Coventry
Palmer and their two daughters.

Have not found a marriage license or certificate for the marriage of
Sionilli and Charles
I would assume that they were married in Illinois. Sionilli is in the 1880 US Census in Illinois and their two daughters were born in Illinois.
After Sionilli died in 1901 Charles and his two daughters Myrel and
Vine moved to Columbine Colorado.
The girls ran a boarding house for the miners at Hahns Peak. Charles worked in the mines. Charles and Patrick Magill had worked together in Cripple Creek Colorado mines earlier.
