Jeptha Monroe Fortson, b. 1845 Leake Co.Ms (son of Aaron J. Fortson, b. 1816) married Margaret Elizabeth Riley, b. 1850, in PANOLA Co. Texas, on Oct. 03, 1871.Recorded in Book C, page 140 Panola Co.Tx. marriage records.Source:Panola Co.Texas Marriage Records, 1848-1912 by Marsha Ann Ivey.Published by J & W Enterprises, Shreveport, La. in 1996.The ISBN number for this publication is 1-57088-044-1.
Jeptha M. Fortson and Margaret Elizabeth Riley's marriage has been stated as recorded in Van Zandt Co.Texas on 03 Oct. 1871. I belive the Panola Co.Texas record is the true record unless------------ Van Zandt Co,Tx. may have been part of the Panola Co.Texas records at that time. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THESE COUNTIES MAY HAVE BEEN COMBINED?
Also, seeking information in Panola Co.Texas of a Green Riley m. Elizabeth J. Jones April 15, 1855.(Book A, page 172)Possible parents of above Margaret Eliz. Riley.??
