Thank you for your efforts, but I've already seen DC for daughter Sarah.
Looks like you pulled info from posts on Rootsweb (now owned by Ancestry) I posted and Susan Laurant replied, we've shared info. Somewhere along the line Ancestry chose to change my name to Gale Braun on my posted replies. Gale and I have exchanged info on our shared Rice and Standefer lines (not Yates), those posts are mine not her's. I don't like Ancestry and after I spotted name changes on my posts I really don't like Ancestry!!!
The link to Graves Family site I've already seen. That information was posted years ago by my grandfather's cousin and it has several errors. I guess I should contact them and request corrections.
You ask about location of marriage for John and Talitha, no for sure they weren't married in KY. Rueben Yates and his family, including John, were on the 1830 census in MO. John is on the 1840 census in Searcy Co, AR with what looks like his wife and child. So, I've been trying to pinpoint whether they were married in MO or AR.
I just returned from a week in SLC and I was trying to put Yates and Graves families in the same location at the time John and Talitha might have met and married. A handed down family story tells how they met, but not where. There is a Samuel Graves on the Izard Co, AR tax record for 1830, 1831, and 1832. In 1833 no Samuel, but a Rebecca shows up on tax record in 1833. Looks like Samuel died between 1832 and 1833. Izard was a large county with several counties taking land to form new counties. Searcy was formed from Izard but within a year or two they changed name to Marion. THEN a county was formed from Marion and they called it Searcy. Nothing like adding to the "fun" of looking for records.LOL
I found a widow Graves on a surveyor's list in 1834, Searcy Co, AR. Since the Searcy of today wasn't formed until 1838 I think it was the land taken from Izard to form the Searcy/Marion County. Anyway, I'm trying to find more on the Samuel and Rebecca Graves, to either prove or disprove.
Sorry you spent so much time digging for information I already had, but just the same I appreciate your efforts. The information is posted and someone else might see your response, who knows? Yesterday I gave a power point presentation at a Family History Fair on posting and searching queries. People seem to have drifted away from queries. I included some of the fantastic finds I've made with queries. A lady on the Yates Forum had an Avory Yates, too old to be son of Rueben. Turns out he was a brother. She had names of counties in NC and KY for her line. On my next trip to SLC using what she had I was able to tie 8 Yates siblings together. Was she happy? You bet, but I wouldn't have made those finds without her information, too. Who does more sharing than genealogists????
