Marriage Licenses - Live Oak, Florida

Surnames: Chancy, Chancey, Chauncey, Sanders, Lee, Clark, Starling, Carroll
I have Marriage license copies for a Mark E. Chancy's marriage to Manarvy Lee in Suwanee County, Florida on Sept 3, 1880.

Also, on the bottom of a copy of my grandfather's, Augustus Chancy & Ella Ruth Starling, marriage license dated october 27, 1907 is a piece of the license for William S. Clark of Suwannee Co, Fl & Miss Jessie Ann Chancey. The date is not on the remnant of license on the bottom of the copy of my grandfather's license.

Samuel W. Chancey & Miss Elizabeth J. Shiver on January 3, 1881.

I have a copy of Leroy Chancey's marriage license from Suwannee County. It is dated February 20, 1910 to Miss Bretha N. Carroll. The marriage was performed by Levi Starling, O.M.S. This may be relevant historically as my grandfather's, Gus, first marriage was to Ella Ruth Starling.

Do any of you have an Andrew Chauncey? He married Nellie Sanders on December 28, 1922. Nellie was my grandmother's, Lizzie Gertrude Sanders, sister. Lizzie married Gus Chancey.

Don't know if any are of interest ... just passing along.

Samuel Chancey and Elizabeth Shiver Chancey are my ggggrandparents. Do you have any other information on their children: Arthur, Milton, Herndon, Edgar, Andrew, Marvin, Mary (gggrandmother), or Ollie? It is my understanding they are all half bros/sisters. Also, is there a date of birth for Samuel or Elizabeth Chancey on the license? I would be glad to share other information on the Mary M. Chancey family line if you're interested. My email is

My great-grandfather was Levi Starling (CSA) of Suwannee Co, FL and I know he was a primitive Baptist preacher. His church was the Patmos Primitive Baptist Church on the Mayo Road just before Luraville and Mayo. I have a few photos of him.

I have Ella Ruth Starling (22 Oct 1892 - 22 Feb 1911) as the wife of Augustus Chancey (married 27 Oct 1907). Ella was William Allen Starling's daughter and Levi's granddaughter. Her sister Susan Elizabeth Starling was my grandmother. I have a family photo of the Levi Starling family on a porch that includes about 5 generations.

Leroy was the brother of Gus Chancey. Indeed, he does have family in the south Polk County area of Florida.
