Questions about Joel's childhood and early adulthood?

Joel’s childhood and early adulthood before age twenty-six have mystified historians. In June of 1900 she was listed in the Mobile, Alabama census and by October 21 of that same year her marriage license was recorded in Indianapolis, Indiana. How and when did she meet her husband and what prompted the transition from Mobile, Alabama to Fort Wayne, Indiana? Who were the people in Joel Ninde’s family and what background influenced a young girl to choose a career in the traditionally male dominated architectural field at a time when women were usually relegated to hearth and home?
