Jenkins/Keziah Bradford; first husband James LaFonsy Tucker, son of John and Ruby Holloway Tucker; she has one son, James W. E. Tucker b.@1861).

***It is stated in Ward's book, p. 237, that David Garren married Louise Milton on Apr. 6, 1876. I cannot find this listed in the marriage sources I have, Fannin Co., GA 1854-1941, Gilmer Co., GA 1835-1960, Union Co., GA 1833-1897.
I hope this clears up the questions,
