Parish on 7 December, 1873...by R. L. Veazy MG.....Bondsman was W.N. Parish.....I double checked her by looking in 1870 census for any Spikes family in Henry co., Tn......there was only one....P.T. Spikesage 62mwborn NC......wife was Polly(usually means her name was Mary)....60fNC HOLLAND24ffarmingNC Mary22ffarmingNC Thos.19mfarmingNC Isaac18m
