    10. [S1554] Doddridge County Marriage Records, West Union, WV.
      There are two entries for this marriage, one dated Dec 4 1859 and the other dated Jan 4 1860. Confusingly, the latter appears to pertain to issuance of the marriage license, while the earlier one appears to record the actual marriage. There are no clues that would lend more credence to one than the other.
