Looking for information on a Daniel Coleman that supposedly married a Jane Fair June 31, 1852 in Lincoln Co KY. This info from KY MARRIAGES 1785-1979 records. Info says that Daniel was 56 yrs/old, born Lincoln Co.A place called Hanging Fork? is mentioned. Can anyone identify a Daniel Coleman that would fit this description?
There is also a Daniel Coleman that married a Jane Fair from Lincoln Co KY on July 1, 1852. This marriage took place in Casey Co KY and this Daniel was 63 y/o, a widower born in VA. Info from KY MARRIAGES 1852-1914. What are the odds of two people with the same names marrying 1 day apart in 2 counties that are neighbors to each other? Needless to say, I'm very confused.
The Jane Fair that I seek was the d/o James M Fair & Mary Elizabeth May who lived in Lincoln Co. James M Fair was born in VA ca 1767; Mary Elizabeth was born in Maryland. Don't know when they moved to KY.
