 *Sidney Tanner was married to Mary Ann Neyman Nickerson Tanner Tanner, a widow with four living children who had previously been sealed to his brother John Joshua, but I don't know anything more about that. They didn't have children. He was also sealed to Amy Salina Burk, the deceased sister-in-law of his daughter Lydia Tanner Burk, and Lucelia Shepherd, the deceased sister of his wife Julia Ann Shepherd Tanner. These were both proxy sealings to make sure all the temple work was done for both of these relatives, as was sometimes done back then.
