Joyce: The information I have on JAMES W. PINION b.1855, GA married MARY MATILDA CALTON. I have been to their graves in Okemah, Oklahoma where they are buied side by side in the Morse Cemetery. I visited there this May 2001. I have that they were married on October 15, 1871 in Aurora, Barry County, Missouri.
Does this help?
The only exception that I see to your query is that I have James W. Pinion's father as ANDREW JACKSON PINION, not JEPTHA? do you have any clarification on this, maybe that would help me get over a hurdle of finding ANDREW'S father.
Hope this helps and please respond to my email address, as I don't get out on the web very often.
