I question this Kentucky Marriages, 1802-1850

Marriage Date: 13 Apr 1820
Marriage Place: Gallatin Co., Kentucky
Spouse: James Jr. Day

Notes: cannot be James H Day, as he is not born until 1815-1817, but could this be his parents ?

 

 

Why I do not believe Eli was born IL  also 1860, 1900 census show born MO, parents born MO & 1910 shows IL, parents born TN, 1920 shows IL, parents born TN & Northwest Territories

 

born 1860 census 1860 4 mos, 1900 b. Feb 1865 MO, 1910 b. 1859 IL - 1920 b. 1858, IL

 

Not Found are James H & Denica in 1870 or 1880, nor do we know when they died

 



1850 - Harriett A Day, age 9 (1841, KY) - District 2, Lewis Co., KY

1858, 5 Dec - Harriet A Day, Iron Co., MO marriage to John Jefferson Harbison (also born KY)

1860 - Elihu S Day, 4 mos (1860, MO) - Kaolin, Iron Co., MO

1860 - Harriet A Harbison, 18 (1842, KY) - Kaolin, Iron Co., MO (Post Office Pine Grove) John J Harbison, Farmer - 1st born Elizabeth A Harbison, 1859, MO [Elizabeth Alice Harbison]
 

1868 - Mary A Day (Ann or Adeline) m. 22 Mar to John T Cloud, Butler Co., MO


1870 - Harriet Harbison, 37 (1833, KY) - Township 34 Range 1 East, Iron Co., MO - Post Office: Ironton - Jefferson Harbison (wagon making) 

 

1870 - Phoebe Rebecca Marler - Perry, St Francois Co., MO
1870 - Sophia Jane nee Day Donally Polk, Madison Co., MO  might originally be Donnelly

1870 - James Madison Day is living in Polk, Madison Co., MO - with his Sister Sophia Jane nee Day Donally (William J Donally)
 

1875 - Nathan Lewis Day, m. Phoebe Rebecca Marler, 31 Jul, St Francois Co., Wayne Co., MO


1880 - Harriett A nee Day Harbison, 36 (1844, KY) - Kaolin, Iron Co., MO alive as of 2 Jun 1880 - Jefferson Harbison, Farmer

1880 - Alice Dennison/Elizabeth Alice Dennison, 21, 1859, MO - Jackson, Carter Co., MO
 

1880 - Nathan Lewis Day - Perry, St Francois Co., MO, with Phoebe nee Marler, no Eli Shep or James H or Denica


Notes: Unless you have the wrong Eli Shep Day, Nathan, James H...nothing else points to IL or W M Jacob Day, otherwise we would of found other records showing Centralia IL (besides the 1910 & 1920 census) for Eli and something showing W M Jacob Day, within findings of Eli's siblings.   So far only Eli's death cert.
