WAYNE COUNTIANS MARRIAGE’S BEFORE 1892
Submitted by Darlene Cole
|From Obituaries unless otherwise noted,
[note from NORA O. REED]
As stated before, the accuracy of these dates & names depend on how well the transcriptions were written and read. Transcribed from micro-filmed newspapers published in S. E., MO, mostly Wayne County.Some marriage dates were checked against what Beulah (Twidwell) Davis, (BTD) listed in her Family Book, pub. in 1974 and noted if different. I also included some marriage dates that I found in other states & counties if the family settled in Wayne Co., MO. Dwc
* Appears where the date is 1892 or later. My comments are in brackets & italics.

[Goodspeed’s 1888 Sketches, pp. 1149. Perhaps Meshack was related to Andrew & Rainey
Ward of the 1860 Wayne Co. census? Meshack was also born in Orange Co., NC in 1804]
The Goodspeed sketch says that Meshack’s parents were Wm & Delilah (Compton). No
marriage record was found for them in Orange Co., NC, but there was one found for a Shadrick
Ward to a Delilah (Compton) 10, Sep 1818 and I’ve wondered if maybe this Shadrick Ward
and Delilah were the parents of Andy & Rainey, and a brother to Meshack? I just didn’t find
any Obendigo Ward. Ha! Both Andrew & Rainey named their first-born Wm., and both of their
named one son with the middle name of Shadrick.
