I also have the same 3 marriages for Washington Heath. I found it very interesting that within months of Ann Maria's death, Washington married Victoria Holland. They were divorced sometime before October 31, 1865 when she married Uriah Smith Wolcott in Placer Co., Calif. I haven't found any information that she was a widow--would love to know if you find something about it. My mystery is why she was in Kent County [Michigan] in the first place?
