I can't seem to find evidence for who is father of Electa Terry (who marries James Richcreek, in my family tree). Several sites list Joshua Terry. But I can't find any source material. Can anyone help?

And can anyone provide sources for Joshua's father? Some sites say Uriah, some say Parshall -

Karen: Maybe you could help move a conversation forward by adding the information that you have about this man to his profile -- and do include citations to your sources.
As I say in my note, I don't have any source materials. There is a marriage certificate showing "Licty" Terry James Richcreek get married. On "Ancestry" several people list "Licty" as Electa, and indicate her father is Joshua Terry. But no source materials are included. Other sites, including My Heritage and I believe wiki, list a John or Jonathan or Joshua Terry as her father, with no source material. So -  I have no source material to list. I'm trying to discover whether anyone has anything relating Electa Terry, wife of James Richcreek, to Joshua Terry. (PS: I HAVE found the will of a Uriah Terry that names a Joshua as a son!)
Regarding Licty/Electa, you say you have a marriage certificate, but where is her profile, and where is the certificate? Where did she live? When did she marry?

That profile has no verifiable sources, so unable to say. Do you know what country, state or other info, please

I am looking for the father of Electa Terry who marries James Richcreek.

I thought I asked in an appropriate place. I didn't realize I had to provide everything I did have in order to hear back from others - and I don't know how to get that info on here. Licty Terry marries James Richcreek in Coshocton Ohio. Some sites state that her father is Joshua, others that her father is Jonathan. I don't know what else to provide.

This won't tell you who her father was, but will give you a bit of information to follow.  They were married:
Name:     James Richcreek
Gender:     Male
Marriage Date:     6 Sep 1831
Marriage Place:     Coshocton, Ohio, USA
Spouse:     Licty Terry
Film Number:     000895286
1840; Census Place: Virginia, Coshocton, Ohio; Roll: 387; Page: 358; Image: 728; Family History Library Film: 0020162

a Young girl in her early 20's wouldn't be living alone, so I followed the 1840 census and they are still in Ohio with an Ann Terry living next to them, possible Mother as Ann is 40-50 years old.

1840; Census Place: Virginia, Coshocton, Ohio; Roll: 387; Page: 358; Image: 728; Family History Library Film: 0020162
 By 1860 they are in Indiana.

So which Terry man was married to an Ann is what i would search for.
