Have you considered sending for the death certificate of Susan Gresh to see who they may list as her parents?Have you been able to find an obituary for you Susan?Have you been able to find the obituary of Augustus Gresh to see if it mentions his wives and their maiden names?Marriage license applications were not recorded at the county level until 1885, so their marriage of 1884 would probably not be listed.
