My ancestors James M. Rankin and Elvira Irons were married in the Lake Creek Settlement (now the town of Montgomery) on Dec 23rd, 1834, according to her Army of the Republic widow's pension. I cannot find the actual marriage record anywhere. I have contacted the Catholic archives in Austin, and they don't have it. Perhaps they were married at the home of William M Rankin (a possible relative) and his wife Sarah Landrum? If anyone has an old bible, or information on this, please contact me!
