Bedford County Marriage Records are actually Surry County, NC and should not be in message.
TN Venable family was paying taxes by 1812 or 1814 in TN.
Williamson County, TN marriage records from county archives in Franklin, TN.
One other note: There is a Marshall County, TN record concerning Andrew Venable and his heirs by Parthena Street. I still have to check this out. 1850 Census Limestone Co., AL, James M. Venable has a daughter named Parthena. Anybody know anything about her?
