Hi Sue, The date of birth would be the right time frame. James Franklin Thomas (husband of Minerva Catherine Woolwine) was born 3/19/1856 in Rockbridge Co. Va. They married in 7/8/1883. I imagine they married in West Va. as James' parents moved from Rockbridge Co. Va. to Greenbrier Co. W. Va. in 1877. Would appreciate any info. you can share on Minerva.
