Need help locating the correct marriage date for Eli and Elizabeth Tucker Estep. I have found two dates 27 July 1847 and 27 July 1843 but cannot prove which date is correct. It is important that I find the correct date as it affects two children and who their mothers are.
I do know that Rachel Shastid, first wife of Eli C. and my ggggrandmother, most likely died around 14 Aug 1846 when their daughter Rachel was born. I have not been able to verify this information.By 1850, Eli was married to Elizabeth Tucker. I do feel that the 1843 marriage year to Elizabeth is incorrect. Censuses state that Elizabeth was born in 1828 so if she married in 1843 she would have been age 15.
Can anyone help me? I am willing to order "The Madison County Musings" but do not know which years to order.
