Does anyone know of a Pricey Elizabeth Spoon, or Sarah Elizabeth, that married an Obadiah Mathews in mid- 1800's in Tennessee?
She may have been born in 1835 in Tennessee, and her headstone says 1910 for death. Jackson co. Tn. I suspect she was born in either Illinois, Indiana,Kentucky or even N.C. though.(I haven't found any Spoons in Jackson County.)
We're not so sure about the Pricey because we have found spellings of "Prissie". which suggests that it may have been a nickname. But it does say Pricey on her headstone. We have also found the name Sarah in one census. Maybe her name was Sarah Elizabeth.
She was supposed to be married previously to an Anderson and had 2 sons by the name of James and Frank when she married Obadiah. He was considerably older than she and had a daughter named Nancy to bring to the marriage. They had 5 more children of their own.
I found a court record of a divorce between a Sarah E. and Caleb Anderson.
Please, if anyone has any info that may help us with continuing our ancestor search, I would appreciate hearing from you.
