On This Day: September 15

1830: James B. Forshee and Sarah A. Parker, my paternal 2nd great-grandparents, were married, probably in Monroe County, Tennessee. Their marriage record has not been found. James and Sarah had seven children: George, Richard, John, Benjamin, Margaret, Joseph, and Sarah (my great-grandmother).
