"1 Oct 1849 md. William Pitt Armstrong in Grainger, Tennessee
Ancestry.com - Tennessee State Marriages, 1780-2002 shows a marriage certificate in Grainger County for William P. Armstrong and Harriet J. Fulkerson on 11 October 1849. This would correspond to the birth of their first child in 1850.
The wedding date listed (in 1841) is for William Pitt and Hetty King recorded in Tennessee State Marriages, 1780-2002 shows they were married in Hawkins County on 3 Mar 1841 - nine years before the birth of William P. Armstrong and Harriet J. Fulkerson's first child.
You can contact Marsha Lee Sparhawk at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you might have. Hetty King is my ancestor and these two women seem to be mixed up in the records. ________________________________ Notes for MARGARET LAUGHLIN VANCE:
"Margaret Vance was born 12 September 1794 in Washington Co., VA to Samuel Vance II and Margaret Laughlin. Margaret died 22 June 1864 in Washington Co., VA. On the 21st of November 1815, Margaret married Abram Fulkerson in Washington Co., VA. Abram was born 3 April 1789 in VA and died 2 October 1859 in Washington Co., VA. Margaret and Abram are both buried in Sinking Spring Cemetery, Abingdon, VA. They lived in Washington Co., VA and Grainger Co., TN, where Abram farmed. (VFA NL, January, 1997, p 13) Margaret and Abram had eight children. Nothing is known about two of their children, Francis and Harriet. The other six children were: James Lyon, Mary Vance, Samuel Vance, Isaac, Katherine Elizabeth, & Abram Jr." Source: Vance Family Association, Jan 1998, Vol XIV Jan 2002
In trying to remember where all this came from, I think the Vance Family Association, but I note they say above "nothing is known about two of their children, Francis and Harriet"
Makes me wonder if the grave in the photo is the correct Harriet, but makes sense that Charles would be born to them within a year of their marriage in 1849. Let me know if you come across anything definitive. Thanks, Pam
RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 105974567 You are most welcome. I took pics there before, and I noticed wooden stakes with orange ribbons on them there...that means there is a new arrival - either person or marker being placed or engraved onsite... so I took a look and saw markers both for him and Irene.
I am related by marriage through Edward Elmer Sprague Memorial# 86249992. And so I take am interested in the whole Sprague family. I would be interested in Ella, Patsy & Lois Sprague's pictures. You can send them to email@example.com this is the same email i use on Find A Grave. Thanks
Omar D. Kelley I was excited to see the Photo of Omar, Are you related. I have been researching my Kelley Ancesters for years with the help of a lady from the Christian County Historical Soc. Do you have any additional photo's of him, his wife, his parents and etc. I have been trying to find where Alfred and Julia "King" Kelley are buried. All I know is the possibility of Palmer, Ill.
