Hello: My name is Wayne R. Morgan i am a volunteer researcher for Wiki Tree.
Found 2 birth records for a Minnie Browning ( West Virginia Birth Index 1853-1969.
One born Wayne West Virginia 1896.Would been 16 when married.Another born
April 1 1898,Father Jerry Browning,Mother Nancy Browning.14 on marriage.
West Virginia Marriage Index 1785-1971.Minnie Browning marries Lewis Hensley
1912 at Mingo,West Virginia.14-16 yrs old may have been acceptable at the time.
I have researched a lot in Wales & England,back Circa 1200-1600 boys married
abt 14 girls had to be 12,I had a relative back then she married at 12 and died
in childbirth at age 13.Marriage promises could have been made at any age,and
if they married at a early age,as long as both families agreed nothing was said.
1920 Census Louis Hensley and a boarder George Dempsey both are motormen in a coal mine.Shows Minnie 21 born abt 1899,In almost all records
your Lewis is spelled Louis.Have earlier record on family if you want them.
