I am looking for several people in particular.
William Harris SORY, b. 1851, Enterprise, Rusk Co, TX ?
son of James Lucas SORY and Nancy James HALTOM.

Accordingly to my sources, he married twice:
Married to Texas Cynthia Ann ALEXANDER, 10 January 1875 in Jacksonville, Cherokee Co, TX
Married to Mattie Lee HENRY, 3 September 1884 in Gibson Co, TN
I am not certain these marriages, dates, or places are correct.I would like to try and verify them. If they are correct, I would like more information on the wives, such as their parents' names.
