I have a copy of a marriage license dated 30 Nov 1825. It is for my great grandparents, William Lockmiller and Eliza Carrell in Rhea County, TN, and is signed by John Farmer. I have believed for a long time that Eliza was the daughter of Luke Carrell, or Carroll, and Elizabeth Murphey. The 1850 McMinn Co., TN census shows her to be 46 years old, born in Tenn. in 1804 which fits with your information. Earlier census' show the only Carroll living nearby to be Luke Carroll and the ages fit. William and Eliza Carrell Lockmiller named their children Henry, George, Darcus, Alfred, Mary, Hannah, William, Jackson, and Nancy. Eliza had siblings named Alfred, Mary, and George. I realize those are common names, but it all fits. William and Eliza's son, Alfred, was my grandfather.
