Debbie, I don't know what went wrong but I didn't receive the copy of the marriage record for J.R. Walkup and Mattie Gray. Did it have any useful information?
I've been wondering how 2 young girls got from Union Parish, LA to north central Texas to get married. They must have travelled there with relatives, but who? Older brother Alex is the most likely choice but why doesn't he show up in records in that area?
