    • REF: Family Tree #2296 lists marriage as October 11, 1817

      REF: Jim Sinclair
      I have Elizabeth Telford's marriage listed a being to Mills Wood on 22 Oct 1817 in Wilson county. I got this data from Wilson County marriage records at the courthouse. I also have the marriage listed as Milo Wood on 11 Oct 1817, which I took from the Suggs Creek Church records. Your date of 4 Nov. may be the date the marriage certificate was returned for recording. I did not list the date of the marriage issuance or return on my records. I believe that they probably got the license on 11 Oct, were married on the 22nd and the return was made on 4 Nov. but have no proof . At any rate all are within a 30 day range, I have no other information on her or her husband. I list her as a child of Hugh and Jane Telford. This is based on information from Carrie Lou Mix on who is a descendant of Hugh & Jane. I show no children for Elizabeth and Milo.
