Would love other people to view this relationship

+5 votes
My feeble mind is having trouble.  I am working on the relationship of William Terry II (Terry-83) and Rachel Manson (Manson-8).  I think there is a lot of information questioning Rachel's parentage and whether she and William were married in Botetourt County, VA or in Philadelphia, PA.  I have a cousin who works a lot on Ancestry and she thinks the listing of a marriage in Philadelphia is the right one, but I see many others online (who have their own supporting information) that say it was Virginia.  


I have edited the marriage information on this couple to reflect that there is conflicting information.  I've also been working on listing the various information I am finding (with sources) on Rachel's profile.  There's a huge amount of information on the Terry Family Historian site, which I linked to, but getting into tax records and deeds is very confusing for me.


I just think it would be helpful to have another pair of eyes go over the information.  I've listed and highlighted as much as I have found.  I want so much to be sure that I have accurate information.  :)

It's a bit difficult to follow. 

  1. What original source supports the Philadelphia marriage? and what exactly does it say?
  2. What source supports the Virginia marriage and ditto?
  3. What, if any evidence supports the possibility of two separate couples/families?

The profile would benefit from a clean up after apparent merges.

Perhaps start by grouping info under the appropriate headers.

Then start finding the propers source and reference each statement of fact to that source.

You may find a lot of garbage to remove and the answers you are looking for or at least new source to go find.
