On February 27, 1893 he married Ella Zenia Queary in Clyde, Kansas.  She was the daughter of Alexander Queary and Sarah A. Henderson Queary.  Ella was born in Lee County, Iowa on March 26, 1867 and died in Vining, Clay County,  Kansas on January 12, 1952.

Apparently Ella was planning to marry another man before she married Elmer  because I found a license in the Cloud Co. Kansas Marriage Licenses 1886— Ella Quary & John Fountain; license returned unused, 1886.
