I am looking for a marriage license or some proof that Charles "Charley" Daveney (1767-1815) my 5th great grandfather and Nancy Anna Lee were together.  Supposedly my  4th great grandfather Charles Alexander Devaney (1790-1880) was their son.  I am related through DNA testing.  I have been researching this to no avail and really would love to have this piece to my puzzle found.


Thank you so much...Carla Dearing

I was trying to help, but I am stymied....I did find your what I think is your line...Walter Wheeler>Charles Henry>Hugh (1820-1893)>but then I cannot get to Charles Alexander....

It will help if you start building out your family tree....

Need to be very careful, as you work back in this family, numerous trees have Charles Alexander born in England, having a child born in Tennessee, then marrying Nancy Ann in Virginia, then coming to the United States.

Did not find the marriage proof you inquired about, but maybe someone at WikiTree with the needed resource, can find the marriage record you seek.
