    Family Thomas Ware,   b. Abt 1770, Maryland Find all individuals with events at this location,   d. 19 Jan 1859, Colorado Co., Texas Find all individuals with events at this location  (Age ~ 89 years)  [2
    Married 1796  Talladega, Talladega Co., Alabama Find all individuals with events at this location  [4
    • U.S. marriage records says that this occurred in Georgia. In 1796, Alabama was a part of Georgia, I think.

      This hardly seems the likely place for this marriage. Talladega was frontier country. The Jimersons and the Wares were well established on the eastern side of Georgia and did not seem to be heading out to the west to get married.
