1820-1852 with  the  name Joel Smith and  Elizabeth Lane   could  this  be  it? Georgia Genealogy  trails. I was  unable  to  paste  the  site  here
No wrong person.  Sorry answer to wrong question
Elizabeth G Gains is the incorrect person

The 1844 Houston County, Georgia marriage license is correct  I think the Layne spelling is what they heard for Gain.  But all other info fits. Elizabeth was in Houston County according to Census befor and after this date as a Gain and a Smith

I cannot find any military infor for this Joel Smith especially in Tenn.
