5. 1874 Bible recorded marriage of William Lynn or Len Davis to Sarah M. Robertson .... this is the document that every one says is John signing John T. I saw the picture posted and copied it. Enlarged it, the mark that is claimed to be a T. is the near the below the line loop of written Seventy Four coming down between written Jno Davis and the loop of the D in Davis connecting to the upper part of the Y tail. Another mark also appears to be a printed T. this is in a different colored ink. The handwriting for most of the page is the same. And the same person also wrote the Jno Davis and Jamima J. Davis.
