    3. [S1554] Doddridge County Marriage Records, West Union, WV.
      Identified as Ashbell Reed, 22, res. Doddridge Co; and Elizabeth Adams, 15, res. Doddridge Co, dau of William Adams. Marriage license issued Oct 9 1852. The handwritten record has no provision for indicating the date of the marriage ceremony.

    7. [S1554] Doddridge County Marriage Records, West Union, WV.
      There appear to be two entries for this marriage, both in handwritten ledgers. (1) MR p. 13: Christopher Lipscomb, 25, son of John Lipscomb; and Elizabeth Reed, 23, dau of William Adams; date of entry May 21 1855. (2) MR p. 114: Christopher Lipscomb, widowed, farmer, age 24, b. Harrison Co, res. Doddridge Co, son of William Lipscomb; and Elizabeth Reed, widowed, 17, b. Harrison Co, res. Doddridge Co, dau of William Adams; married Jun 18 1855 in Doddridge County. (Note: It is likely that the first entry is for a marriage bond or the issuance of the license, while the second entry is for the marriage itself. Wife's age given in the second entry is presumably a clerical error, as is identification of husband's father as William rather than John.)
