I have a marriage license from Lamar Co. Texas for Margaret J. HAMBY ( HEMBY or HEMLY etc) and James Fleece ENOX dated April 29, 1853.Because there are many famlies of the Hemby surname in that area it was assumed that her surname was Hemby as well.However,I have searched this family for many years and cannot find any Hemby with a daughter named Margaret J.On the 1860 Red River Co. TX Census she is listed with her husband as Joana.They had four children and then Margaret Joana died shortly after the birth of the forth.The children are Sarah Jane b. 1854, Lucy Belle b. 15 Mar 1856, Nancy Araminta b Jan 1862, and John Marion b. 27 Nov 1862.
These are my gg grandparents.James' family came from KY.Does anyone have information on the parents of this Margaret or where she came from?Any and all help appreciated!
